The past few months have been SO busy between work and school and trying to keep up with my running and yoga, I feel like I’ve barely had time to blog!
I do have an ever growing list of ideas I’d like to blog about though and I’m hoping that with some changes in my schedule in the upcoming weeks I’ll have some time to get back to regularly posting (other than my weekly training recaps!).
I have two ideas though that I need YOUR help with!
First, this past weekend when I was down in Virginia running with Megan and Cyanne we started talking about running fuel and some of the odd things that people use (my favorite long run fuel is potato chips for the salt!).
It gave us an idea to gather up a list of weird fuel & recovery ideas and start a blog post series to test them all out! (I’ve previously reviewed using pickle juice for electrolytes HERE!)
So tell us, what’s the weirdest fuel/ recovery/ running suggestion you’ve ever heard??
My second idea came out of last night’s #BibChat. One of the questions asked was about finding great (and safe!) places to run while traveling.
Since I know so many of my readers are not only also bloggers, but we live all over the place, I thought it may be fun to all write posts on things to do and places to run in your area!
If you’re interested in participating, leave a comment and/ or e-mail me at LiveRunGrow@gmail.com and we’ll coordinate!
Great ideas! I’m pretty traditional in my fuel, although the idea of potato chips (or maybe Cheez Doodles?) is incredibly appealing. I’m VERY interested in writing about places to run/be active in my area–there are so many options! My email is darlinrae[at]gmail[dot]com–drop me a line!
Awesome, I’ll e-mail you in a day or two once I hear back from (hopefully!) a few more people and we’ll coordinate the posts!
I’ve actually never eaten anything while running. I’ve heard that Chocolate Milk is a great recovery drink though?? At first, I thought people were joking, but I heard so many of them talking about it…. I haven’t taken the time to research what exactly is so great about a cup of choco milk after a run.
Yes, chocolate milk is great for recovery, my husband uses it! It has to do with the ratio of carbs to protein.
For the latter, I could talk about the really great running trail I use!
Awesome, what’s your e-mail address? I’ll send out an e-mail coordinating once I (hopefully!) hear back from more people!
