Bryan Morton ran in the 118th running of the Boston Marathon, finishing in a time of 2:31:23, setting a new PR and placing 93rd overall. Bryan is an elite marathoner with the Skechers Performance, Rogue Running, and EnduroPacks Teams. He has his sights set on qualifying for the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in 2016.
As Bryan bumped up his weekly volume to 100miles over the past 8+ months he noticed it takes a little longer to recover from workouts/races. Bryan had this to say about his training, "That heavy feeling in my legs lingers for a tad longer than it did when I was averaging 20-25% less miles the year prior. This is what sort of kicked off my curiosity in what other endurance athletes were doing to speed up recovery. You know, beyond the ice baths, rolling out, massages, etc...I started adding in EnduroPacks micronutrients into my training back in November. In that short period of time I’ve already become a huge believer. The liquid multi-vitamin provides the nutrients I’m not getting from the foods I take in, the concentrated electrolyte spray keeps me hydrated in Austin’s heat/humidity and the amino recovery patch/glutamine pills aid in speeding up recovery. Since starting this regimen my legs have recovered far quicker from key races and workouts."
Athletes of all levels have found benefits from adding micronutrients into their daily training regimen. Read more about micronutrients and their benefits here.
We need to hydrate. But how can you hydrate and replace electrolytes without the harmful additives like sweeteners and artificial flavoring common in sports drinks that are harsh on your stomach?
