Ultra Girl Goes Solo

B is now training MMA/jiu jitsu, but he  awakened a passion in me for ultra running. Now that he is not training for ultras, I am on my own to train for the next one, it’s a up to me to look back and assess what I could have done better in my training.
Things I know to change:

1. Recovery 

I must recover smarter, and understand my own bodily needs; ice baths, Epsom salt, collagen supplements, visiting a sports medicine Doctor…etc.

2. Nutrition 
gotta eat better & cleaner! I may have a food allergy, so I have to look into that, or perhaps it’s just me not eating clean enough)

3. Workout Diversity 

Change up workouts 

I must lift for good strength & conditioning. It’s important to have a strong core, including glutes and upper legs muscles to be a good, and better runner

Also I need to do yoga, my body seriously needs to stretch its little muscles!

4. Support 

I need to make valid connections to like-minded people, going on the same path as me, to support them & also for personal good feels-not a lot of people are going to understand why I like the ultra or running over a 5k at all, but that’s okay, it’s my life & this is what makes me happy)!

 5. Aesthetics 

Last but not ast but not l, I am a girly girl, I still care about my appearance, I can’t neglect my hair, skin, teeth & outfits. With the right pair of shoes, a fit body, good hair—and a determined mind, this girl can do anything & so it will make working an office job better as a corporate designer!!

Also I am visiting the dentist to get teeth healthy & over time get invisilign.
***I am attempting to this all on my own! It feels good to be strong & independent! Yet, have support from my boyfriend & my father!  Brandon is such a wonderful young man who I am insanely attracted to. 

My dad as everyone knows, is just the kindest and more supportive man ever. I want to be strong for him, and I know he wants to start trail running once he moves to Virginia!! You bet I will be visiting him and running with him! 

Let’s do GREAT THINGS!!!***

I apologize for formatting and grammar errors. This is a quick jot using my iPhone! 

 Me walking my 4th lap during my first ultra, my knee was in serious pain!! But I was happy to be out there. It was beautiful and very fulfilling to be doing something so epic!
