As I’ve decided to start from scratch with my running, I’ve also decided to rethink all my fueling and eating. I think since ZOOMA and my RRCA training I’ve wanted to get my ducks in a row to make sure I’m being the best runner I can be to be the best coach I can be once I get there.
So I got an opportunity to try out some Vega Sport fuel through Sweat Pink, and I’ve gotta say…big fan.
I tried the Vega Sport pre-workout energizer – the taste is kind of m’eh but I really like drinking it before my workouts as I’m getting ready to go out running. You drink it about 20 minutes before your workout and it provides immediate energy, increases your endurance and anaerobic capacity, and enhances mental focus and recovery.
The first time I tried it was before my 8 mile run in May. I had a banana and a glass of this before I headed out for my run and by the end of my run, when I’m usually famished, I was hungry but felt energized through most of my run, and didn’t ache nearly as much as I usually do after long runs. Who knew fueling properly (and by that i mean fueling at all) could help you get more out of your workout?!
I really need to start bringing one of these to work with me for the nights I run afterwork – it’ll be a nice end of the day energizer that’ll get me through the last hours of my day.
