chef vishal: kombucha

When I find myself consuming a particular snack, food, drink, etc. on a regular basis, I try and re-construct the recipe to control the quality of the ingredients. Cleaner, more pure ingredients will perform much better in your body.

With that said, like most of the country I’ve been on a kombucha kick for quite some time now, and I only recently started brewing it at home hearing one of my co-workers (Arielle) talk about how easy it is.

​break the mold: run in the afternoon

you often hear people speak about running in the morning with a tremendous amount of gusto and enthusiasm. and for many years, I tried to assimilate myself to this group of uber-motivated morning people. however, after years of trying to pretend that this is enjoyable I had an epiphany; “running in the early morning is the worst. the absolute worst”. all that being said, I understand that life sometimes necessitates a morning run in order to run at all during an overly busy day. but the question I have for you is, “if given the choice, would you still run in the morning?”

Slow It Down, Pick It Up

Fartlek. That's fun to say!​

For those who have never incorporated fartleks into your training, it's a style of speedwork that is designed to be flexible. they're unlike traditional track workouts where you run hard for a set distance then rest. Often, runners will sprint to a visible landmark, then rest, then pick another landmark and sprint. It's a great way to prepare for race day, when uneven terrain, bottlenecks, and competitors surging around you can lead to variations in pace.

​How You Can (and Should!) Go the Distance

'‘Beat your own best!’' are words to live by here at nuun. We are continually striving to push our boundaries and limitations in an effort to accomplish big, hairy, audacious goals. For someone, that might mean finally crushing your PR and finally getting that BQ. For another it might be overcoming your swimming fears and completing your first triathlon. For me? I decided to attempt two new distances within a year; a full Ironman and a 50K. Two things I thought I could/would never do. I finished my first half Ironman thinking, “Yup, I would never be able to double that.” I crawled across the line of my first marathon thinking, “I will never run further than this… ever!” Turns out, I was thinking too much about how I wouldn’t, not that I actually couldn’t, do those things.

So, the challenge was on! I was going to prove to myself that I had the dedication to push and train for two distances I thought I couldn’t do. Last year, I completed an Ironman and a 50K within 2 months of each other. AND since it was such an eye opening experience for me, I thought I would share a few tips, tricks and reasons why I think you can, and should, step up your game and go the distance as well!
