I’m currently training to complete my first 100 mile ultramarathon. This isn’t my first time attempting it, although this time I’m definitely going to finish. I’ve gone through some of the things that went wrong so I don’t do them again. The silver lining of a bad race is learning from it and not repeating the same mistakes. Ya live and you learn. So today I’m sharing what went wrong to help anyone else who is training for their first ultra.Read More
You guys, summer is officially here.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d much rather have the heat and the humidity over the snow and the cold any day of the week. Maybe it’s from growing up in Florida, but I just feel better running this time of the year. Or maybe that’s what I say to myself to try to make it easier, who knows?Read More
’ve been devouring High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard. One of the things he talked about was PROGRESSIVE MASTERY. Whats make it different then just putting in the hours and doing the same thing over and over is it focuses on the right kind of practice and monitoring your progressive along the way.Read More
I’ll be honest, this has been a hard post to write. It was such a special and, I know it sounds cheesy to say, life changing event that it’s hard to put into words the full experience.Read More
So I thought I’d start sharing what exactly I eat during my training. If you follow me on instagram (@lisalindeyeats) on my stories I usually show what I’m eating but I want to break it down and get specific of what and why.Read More
Hi! Hello! First Monday of 2019!
So I was all set to go on my long run and realized that my Garmin was dead. *FACEPALM* UGHHHH. Such a rookie mistake, amirite? Since Garmin (or at least mine) take forever to charge, I thought it would be a good time to talk about my running goals for 2019.Read More
I always feel like the couple days after a race I’m pretty brain dead. To be honest, I’m still not there a hundred percent but I wanted to write a recap ASAP so here we go.Read More
Man oh man, October 6th is coming up soon. I signed up for the Tesla Hertz 50k a week or two ago after going back and forth between a million races. Not really a million, more like 3, but anyways…Read More
Lately I’ve been very into figuring out the ideal fueling situation before I train. I’ve played around with fasted run and I figured out that I just feel (and perform) so much better if I eat something before my run. It also let’s my stomach get used to digesting food on the run.Read More
Figuring out what to eat before a long run takes some trial and error. I’ve definitely had a few really bad runs due to some poor fueling choices. Flashback to a few weeks ago where I was so nauseas I had to stop my run because I felt so sick. Ugh, there’s no worse feeling then having a sour stomach ruin your run. It’s better that I found out that smoothies don’t work for me before a run during training and not the morning of a race.Read More
Hope everyone's summer is going good. It seems like it is FLYING by amirite?
Anyways, I'm back to running after an extended break and man, is it hard. I know the heat and the humidity aren't helping but dang, I feel like I'm starting at square one.
Oh hey guys!
Just getting back in the swing of things after vacation and starting my training for my upcoming fall races (and beyond!)
My "A" race for 2018 is the Daytona 50. It was my first successful 50 mile finish. I'm looking to beat my 2016 time, which as long as I don't fall, shouldn't be a problem.
I'm not gonna bullshit you. This race wrecked me.Read More
After this Sunday's 25 mile training run, I felt like garbage. I've actually felt like trash ever since running the OSR30 the previous week. I mean, I know why. Leading up to the OSR30 I was on top of my recovery: foam rolling overnight, doing my stretches, epsom salt baths, and compression all the time.Read More
