performance limitations next level training gait analysis

You’re a fairly regular racer, log a lot of training mileage & try to have good nutrition habits. Maybe you are looking to take your performance to the next level. What are a few keys to precisely dial in your nutrition and performance? See 3 tips below!

1. See a sports nutritionist
You can be an avid reader of health, fitness & nutrition information and still have a few missing components. Trust the experts in their field. Find a registered dietitian or sports nutritionist. They will have you keep a food journal, record your likes/dislikes and any problems you have with foods. It is like a running plan for your eating. Soon you will know exactly what foods, how much and how often to eat your way to a better running performance.

2. See a chiropractor or physical therapist for a gait analysis
It’s a challenge to know if you have any biomechanical deficiencies or deviances. Even if you watch yourself run on a treadmill in a mirror, it is difficult to know the degree of drop on your left hip. Do yourself a huge favor and have a gait analysis performed. You will run on a treadmill and they will film you. Your movements will be analyzed by software to determine any problems. This may even identify or prevent an injury.

3. See a running coach or personal trainer
Have a comprehensive program designed for your needs and performance goals. Maybe your go-to 5k training program needs to be updated now that you are training for a half marathon. Perhaps your legs need to be stronger to help you complete your monthly goals of 200 miles.

Bali Body is an Australian based company who makes tanning oils and skin care products that are free of parabens and harsh chemicals. They are plant-derived, seed based oils full of vitamin E, rose hip oil and jojoba and much more! I love that their products are vegan and cruelty-free!
I have previously reviewed the Bali Body Natural Tanning and Body Oil and the Bali Body Cacaco Tanning Oil here. The Natural Tanning and Body Oil is a lightweight moisturizer and will bring a tan when skin is in the sun. The Cacaco Tanning Oil gives an instant light bronze look even without sun exposure. If using them I the sun please remember skin protection with SPF lotion.
I personally choose not to expose my skin to direct sun. In 2013 I lost my mom to melanoma skin cancer. It is very aggressive and does horrible things to the body. I use these products without direct sun exposure, to moisturize, give a light glow to my skin and help my skin to be healthy with a flawless …
