Day 94. Run Early. Run Often.

Early rising means it’s darker and darker in the morning. Here’s a tip for a 7am run. I’ve been doing this for my last 5 runs and I can feel the difference in my endurance and it just feels better to have the remainder of the day to celebrate your early morning accomplishments.

  • 6:15 – 6:20am – Wake up and immediately take a bite of a banana and drink a high carb drink. I’m using Herbalife24 Prepare. I’ve also started to add Herbalife Niteworks. It’s only been 2 runs with this new concoction, but I feel I’m breathing better, cleaner, and more efficient. But again, that could be the 60-degree weather. In any event, I really like the taste of this Pre-Run Cocktail.
  • By 6:45am – finish your 8 ounce carb cocktail and banana. I usually leave one bite for when I get home.
  • Off you go!

Life lesson #94 – Darker and colder means more discipline. Accept the change and make a plan. It’s amazing what just putting on a jacket of acceptance can do for your mentality.

Today’s Activities:

  • 3 x 1.5 mile fast. Which in human terms, means 1 mile slow, 1.50 miles fast, 2 minutes slow and repeat. Then 1 mile slow. The good news … distances below 8 miles are nothing. Won’t go as far as a walk in the park because it takes effort, but I’m in the park vicinity at least. As long as the weather is cool, I am cool. The bad news … my iPhone is crashing. In fact, I didn’t know Mickey Mouse covered Nirvana and Green Day songs.
  • Googled “iPhone is playing too fast” and it offered some assistance. Here’s what happened. About mile 3, Voice Command activated. A few seconds later, Mickey Mouse was on my playlist and if you’ve never heard Mickey sing Very Ape (one of my favorite Nirvana tunes), you haven’t heard nothing. The new iPhone launch couldn’t have come at a better time! If you know how to fix this, I’m all ears (excuse the Mickey pun).

Day 93. Developing a Complex … a Core Complex

Started taking Herbalife Core Complex on Sunday, September 8, 2013. ┬áNice change from taking the handful of things I was previously taking. Now, it’s just 4 tablets in the morning that include Herbalifeline, CoQ10, and Neptune Krill Oil. I’m not even going to attempt to study up on Neptune Krill Oil, but I figure it sounds very official plus the box says endorsed by a Nobel Laureate. Who am I to question the research?

After two days, I can tell you this. Wait for it … I can’t feel anything. But am I surprised? Of course not. I am happy to go from a handful of morning supplements to a tiny hiccup of supplements. The Core Complex has two additional supplements you put aside for the evening which is going to help me save money on my Nature Made B12 I was purchasing separately. The two additional include my B vitamins.

CORE COMPLEX – THE Verdict:

It’s two (pun intended) early to say, but it does appear I will get my B vitamins most vegetarians lack and I no longer have a mouthful of morning sups to contend with.

Why I’m taking it? I jokingly said earlier I’m taking the product because of a fancy label. Truth is, my body is taking a pounding from the pavement. I don’t have swelling on my knees, but I do feel twinges and sharp pains on occasion. Plus, my road mileage is increasing so I want an insurance policy for my heart. All these items are designed for a happy, healthy heart and that is the goal. I know the strain I’m putting on my body and want to give it the proper nutrients to keep on going.

Life lesson #93 – Listen to you body. Minor aches and pains from normal activity is something. Recurring aches and pains from abnormal activity is something else.
