9 Ways an Elite Prepares for a World Championship

BodyHealth's newest team member is an elite runner for the Saucony Hurricanes and owner/creator of Fuel Your Future blog!

Her name is Tina Muir and currently she's training for the World Half Marathon Championships and she's going to also be racing in the London Marathon in April.  We're excited to have her on board and can't wait to read more from her.

She mentioned BodyHealth in a recent blog article she posted:

9 Ways an Elite Prepares for a World Championship

"Last week I mentioned in both posts that I vowed to do the little things. To make sure I give myself the absolute best chance of success in both the World Half Marathon and the London Marathon.

But don’t I already do all those little things?

My non-running friends already think I am nuts, so what more could I possibly do?

Well, here are 9 ways I have stepped up my game to take recovery to another level"

I am an elite runner sponsored by Saucony. I began running when I was 14, and being originally from the UK, I loved true cross country courses (the muddier the better), and I realized I was actually pretty good at it. I came over to the US on a full ride scholarship and ended up as an 11 time All-American athlete at Ferris State in Michigan. I then completed my MBA at La Salle University while being an assistant coach. Now I am pursuing some big running goals while working as the Runners Connect Community Manager and Run to the Top Podcast host. I recently ran in the World Half Marathon Championships and the European Championships for Great Britain, which has been a lifelong dream of mine, and I ran a 4 minute PR in the marathon to run a 2:37. There are a few factors that went into these accomplishments, one of which is adding Perfect Amino to my fueling plan. As a runner, what you put in your body to help with recovery can make all the difference, and Body Health has given me another way to make it nice and easy. I take 5-10 Perfect Amino either just after a workout or during the longer ones, and I know it has made a difference to how I have been able to perform and recover on a daily basis. This summer I have a few races coming up on the East Coast, and then I will be racing the California International Marathon in December.

The Truth Behind H2 and Athletic Performance

Supplemental molecular hydrogen, also known as H2, is becoming increasingly popular for many health concerns due to its effective and safe action as a targeted antioxidant.

And while everyone can benefit from H2, it is particularly beneficial for athletes. Not only can it improve VO2 max levels, but it also helps to reduce muscle fatigue, helps maintain peak performance for longer and speeds healing of soft-tissue injuries.

Today we’re going to dive deeper into how and why H2 affects athletic performance.

The True Cost of Eating Healthy

Today we're going to talk about one of the biggest perceived reasons it is hard to be healthy: the cost of healthy food.

And yes, I said "perceived" – because the cost of food does not have to be a barrier. Almost anyone can turn a diet around without paying more for your food – and in fact, will end up saving money in the long run.

The reasoning behind this is simple... read on to learn why.
