Good sleep is essential, period.
As you can probably tell by my blog posts and my social media, I am a huge workout addict. I love to run, do high-intensity interval training, bike (indoor and outdoor), swim, snowboard, hike, do yoga, etc.!
Since I am such an adrenaline and endorphin lover, I have learned throughout the years that good nutrition, sleep, and recovery tools are key to being able to push my body as I do. For example, more recently, I’ve been playing around with my nutrition during long runs and bike rides, adding in electrolyte pills and Clif blocks, to keep me hydrated and energized. The cool part is that each block is 33 calories so technically I am breaking my fast…but for a good cause and not with many calories.
