1 Orange and bunch of Niteworks (just two scoops with 8-12 ounces of water, before running and after) helps a ton with soreness!!
Oranges are something I don't eat very often, partly because they are messy. I was thinking about what I did as a kid playing AYSO soccer and we had oranges at halftime. I figured it was worth a try.
So here's what happened. At first I wasn't moving great, but I brought a timer with me and I set goals in my mind throughout different markers in the 8.5 mile distance. It helped a lot. In my mind I never thought about quiting but my body at times was hurting a lot. At the same time I got a second wind a couple times throughout the run. It feels soo good I cannot even explain it, but I will try. Basically, my body feels electric throughout for a brief time and all of a sudden the pain and wiryness goes away, it is awesome! I wish it lasted longer though. I was hitting all the marks throughout at the times I wanted to reach. Including the final time. The last time I ran it was in just under 1hr 15 minutes. This time at first I just wanted to do better than the last time, but as I got going, I realized I was feeling great and I decided to try for 1hr 10 minutes. I did it in 1:09:50 seconds!! I hit my goal, it feels soo good when you set a goal and hit it.
On a side not, coming home from the run, I got to thinking about a lot of things. Mostly what is going good for me and what is going bad for me.
Bad: Well my finances are a wreck, I have no girlfriend or wife, my car is falling apart and my house is deeply unsidedown and I am trying to get a government modification on it.
Good: I have my health, I found an incredible company that has helped me change my perspective and relationship with food-herbalife, I went from as large as 210lbs down to 172lbs now, I still have a loving extended family, Mom, Dad, 2 brothers and 2 sisters, all grown up now, 1 niece(2yr old) soo cute, 1 nephew(4yrs old)
Especially after hearing about all of these deaths the last two days, I am happy I am healthy. I was listening to something about Michael Jackson on the way home, and they played the song, we are the world, what an awesome song, Michael Jackson has been a little weird, but he sure was a great performer and singer, I felt soo bad for Fare. Fawset(can't spell) but I think she suffered long enough, I am sure she is in a better place now.
