Nutrition for recovery Tip: What you eat or drink immediately after an exercise workout and the timing of this recovery snack are equally important and this is likely an athlete's most important nutrition decision of the day. There is a window of opportunity that starts immediately after you finish and closes at 45 minutes after a training session or event. Plan a carb + protein snack or recovery drink to consume within that window of time. Ideally bring it to practice and consume it while doing strength and stretching. There are many different food combinations and supplements designed for recovery. Not sure which one is right for you? Schedule an Introductory in depth nutrition analysis with our on-staff Nutritionist, Diana Davis, and find out what's best for you, your goals and your body. https://www.iamwithoutlimits.com/nutrition/ #athleteNutrition #fuelyourworkout #trainsmart #eatsmarter #dowork #EmbraceTheChallenge #WOLNutrition

Downhill Strength Training Tip: You’re in the middle of a hard uphill climb. Your heart is pumping. You’re breathing heavy. Your legs are aching. When is the downhill coming? Trust me I’ve asked myself that question many times. Knowing that once I crest the top of that hill I get to fly down the other side. My lungs get a break. My heart can recover. My legs won’t burn..... but despite downhill running feeling much easier then running uphill. Did you know that running downhill is much harder on your body and often the cause of sore muscles and injuries following hilly races. Yep thats right. Even though less energy is required to run downhill, your muscles are still taking on more stress. When you run downhill your anti-gravity muscles are working eccentrically. They are trying to contract or “shorten” at the same time they are being lengthened or “pulled apart”. This speeds up fatigue which can lead to cramping and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) which is that severe soreness you feel the days after running downhill if you're not used to it.
So what can you do to help your muscles adapt to the demands of downhill running? By running downhill more and incorporating strength training specific to downhill racing. Here a few exercises to get you started. Remember that you need to have a good base of strength as these exercise are advanced and form is more important then repetitions. #downhillrunning #strengthtrainingforhills #iamwithoutlimits #embracethechallenge

The Treadmill.....you either love it or you hate it! Ideally, if you are training for a road race, your best training will come from actually running on the road. However travel, weather and time can become obstacles in our training; leaving the Treadmill as our only option. When you find yourself having to hop on to get miles in.....avoid these 5 common mistakes!
1. Running too close to the front of the treadmill. - It may feel safer and more controlled, but running too close to the front can limit your range of motion and impede your form. Always try to run in the middle of the belt.
2. Looking down at the belt. - It's an easy mistake, but looking down can cause strain and tension in the neck & shoulders. Keep your gaze ahead and avoid looking around the room to avoid missteps.
3. Landing on your heels. - Maintain a forefoot strike to reduce the shock and impact on your knees.
4. Changing your stride. - With the belt constantly moving beneath you, it's easy to unnaturally lengthen your stride to keep up with the pace of the belt. Try to keep your feet as close to underneath you as possible. This is especially important when increasing the incline.
5. Watching the big screen. - Watching the big monitors to pass time as you run in place is normal. However, looking up can cause strain in the neck and cause you to settle into your hips as you run. If you must watch TV, focus on the monitor on your treadmill. You are designed to look out and little down as you run. This means eye line should be at the top of your monitor. #treadmillworkout #embracethechallenge

No better example of breaking limits than Mr. Peyton Chitty.
Peyton got a pacemaker 3 years ago because of a heart defect and since the pacemaker installment he is now heading to the Boston Marathon after his BQ in 2017. Peyton didn't let his heart issues set him back, he used it to show people there are no excuses.
Currently Peyton is ranked top in the world for Cardiac Athletes for 50-54 years old.
Half marathon: 2nd
Marathon 3rd (45-49 yrs old)...about to take the number one for 50-54 at Boston!
Pretty Phenomenal and #WITHOUTLIMITS

“It has been a long road with a few highs and a whole lot of lows, but along the way I always reminded myself “stick to the plan and don’t quit”. After loosing close to 70 lbs, and then choosing the best coach in the world, it’s finally starting to come together. Thank you WOL Charleston Coach Chris @crbai for reshaping me and being tough but kind when I needed it! I’m looking forward to a productive 2019 and beyond!” #withoutlimits #noquit #athletetestimony #dowork #embracethechallenge
