I realized almost a full month has gone by since my last post! Very crazy time, but glad to be getting back to a regular schedule.
I’ve been working on a blog about carbohydrates that I keep writing and re-writing. After a month I think it’s almost done and will try to get it posted later this week.
I’ve traded some emails with a few regular Seven Runners customers – and the feedback has been very good and I wanted to get some additional insight as to what their thoughts on the product. The number one reason they use the product is recovery after a long run. The “day after” a long run (in this case 20 miles as part of marathon training) as an entirely different experience – no soreness, muscle pain, ready to run some more! I’m glad that others have had this experience. A close second is the endurance aspect with feeling better overall late in long runs. Not much comment on performance, but had improved their 5k times over last year.
They seem to work best when taken with a meal or with a snack/dinner after a run.
The only criticism was that they wished the pills were capsules instead of formed pills. I also wish we could do something with capsules, but this would require taking EIGHT capsules instead of the current two formed pills. The formed pills can just hold more of the goodness and I think the complaint would become “eight pills is just too many!”
Still working on getting the word out there. If you’re reading this and interested in trying Elite Runner’s Formula use the coupon code “IFoundMike” for an extra discount.
On a personal level, I’m finally back to putting in some good weekly miles and am back to a building schedule again. I’ve been running without an watch, music, or even my heart rate monitor (I know, shocking!). Right now, I’m just running for the love of it and getting used to how hot it gets here. I have a couple events coming up and can’t wait to just go out an enjoy them.
I wanted to give a shout out to Wilson, someone I’m coaching for his first triathlon. He’s a weightlifter and is cranking up his cardio. I know running can be hard when you first get going, but it will get easier! I know the workouts feel difficult, but you’re at a level that you can do them and we’ll get you ready for the big event!
