Someone call Willard Scott … I’m almost 100! One-hundred days into my personal blog on what I eat, what I do, when I eat it, and when I do it. Say that fast 10 times.
All I ask is that in lieu of the Smucker’s Jam photo, slap my mug on the side of Herbalife24 Prepare and Herbalife Niteworks. I’m sure the Nobel Prize doctor doesn’t need my stamp of approval, but man, ever since I started including Niteworks into my pre-run drink, I feel like a kid running to catch the last swing on the playground. For those of you reading this that never had to do that because there are “Swing Apps” (there’s an App for that), for you I say I feel like Justin Bieber running away from the paparazzi in his white Ferrari.
I was hesitating on adding Niteworks to my program because the label indicates it is not recommended for children, pregnant or lactating women. I’ve been accused of being child-like, but I’m more focused on the “pregnant” part of this as my wife and I are planning for children. If you’re concerned, I recommend asking your physician — my approach and belief, once we’re pregnant, we’ll stop. And notice how I say, “we’re” … I’m sure 100% of women laugh at that.
All the touchy-feely things I feel are great for me, but what about you? For you, I submit my blog posts for every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday … look at the average mile per minute, the decreasing splits, and the increasing distance. I feel great and the measurable stats are consistent with how I feel.
Is Herbalife24 Restore helping?
The morning after my runs, I don’t feel sore or have any ill effects from pavement pounding. I’m probably due a new pair of shoes, but that’s mechanical stuff. In regards to biological stuff, I feel really good. Yes, I feel good at 42-years old running nearly 80 miles per month. I can say that of all the Herbalife products I’m using to help me in this marathon prep, Restore is the one product that I am consistently taking daily.
Hint … Just put the bottle next to your bed. Put it on the nightstand. If you don’t have a nightstand, put it near your toothbrush. If you don’t have a toothbrush, well … you are probably running solo (but not by choice). It’s the easiest thing to take with water.
My new declaration … I am a lean, mean, running machine! Life lesson #99 — what you focus on is what you get. Biblically, Proverbs 27:7
Where the man goes, the man follows
Morning weight = 174. Post-run weight = 171.
- New week, new milestones to break. I find myself going out faster than RunKeeper allows. They allow for a 10-10:30 minute mile on their slow-paced runs. I’m going out between 9-9:30 minute miles for the first 2 miles and then I catch my rhythm and hit mid-8s. All I can say is this … YES! If I wanted to join the Marines, I could pass their PT Test with flying colors.
