After my Florida Keys Race back in May of 2014 my hips were on fire. I had lost all the toenails on my left foot but none on my right. I had the usual aches and pains but wanted to work these last few months on fuelling and getting back to running with zero drop shoes.
So, began training with the shoe, “Altra” and after several months of calf spasms I was finally off to a great start! I feel my gate has improved and I am so much more in control of my running! I am literally pain free from pounding all those miles. I do have to say I have switched shoes and am now in a shoe called, “SKORA“. I love these shoes!!!!!!
The fuelling came last weekend when I took a trip to Austin Texas for a one on one appointment with, Valerie Hunt. She is a,”Pose Method”, running coach and an awesome lady. She taught me the biomechanics of running and perfected my gate! She also is a Paleo follower and gave me a bag of a new fuel called, “3Fu3l”. It is made with grass fed whey protein, coconut, and a starch. Very low carb. This is the fit for me!
I will be fuelling on my next run with this drink and that will be in three weeks! She also coached me on the importance of strength training to prevent injury! So true!!!
