Healthy Run for the Mind and Body
A Healthy Run for the Mind and Body
I decided on June 4, 2016 that I was going to run in an 8K mud run which is actually 90% sand and 10% mud. I ran in this same race 3 years ago, and remembered how brutal it was. I know, what was I thinking? I am one of those people that once I have made a decision to do something, I am going to succeed at doing it.
The race was August 6, 2016, which gave me about 6 full weeks to train. I did most of my training running on the beach (the soft sand). Running on the beach was the only way I was going to get myself fully ready for this race. I also made sure the week before my run that I drank a lot of water (at least 72 ounces a day) and ate lots of healthy food packed with potassium (bananas and avocados) to keep my legs and feet from cramping during the run.
I have also been taking my EHT® – a mind enhancement supplement that not only helps protect and repair the tau protein in your brain but it also helps with muscle recovery. I have been taking this supplement for a year and have noticed a difference in my memory and focus, but after I ran in the mud run I was surprised at how great I felt!
Did you know that when playing most sports that 90% of doing it is mental and the other 10% is physical? In other words, I can get my body completely ready to run in a race but if I am not mentally ready to run I am not going to do well.
The one thing I noticed about myself in this run is that taking the EHT every day helped me build my endurance in the limited amount of time I had to train for this race. I will not lie, running on the sand was hard, but my legs felt good and strong, my breathing was just right and I had enough energy to give it a good sprint at the end. Honestly, I was not sore after the run at all.
EHT is helping me keep my mind healthy as well as helping me in fighting the aging process.
Thanks to EHT, I am able to live a very active lifestyle.
