mini miwok maxi fun

Written by arnokroner on . Posted in running, ultra distance

IMG_8446Since the first time I ran an ultra in the Marin Headlands the nature there became very special to me. Living in Los Angeles, which is a desert with a little water, the coast north of the Golden Gate in contrast is lush and moist, the vistas are terrific and the trails are well maintained.

I like to run two ultras there: the North Face Endurance Challenge (NFEC) in December and Miwok 100k in May. I didn’t report on the last NFEC last December – the weather was harsh (it rained so much – sometimes by the ocean it felt like receiving buckets of water in the face. I ran a sub 10 though and that’s a Western States 100 qualifier!). It was still a fun adventure.

super smoothie

Written by arnokroner on . Posted in nutrition, recovery

IMG_8671Here is what I prepare and drink after each one of my runs:

vega powder: 1 scoop (1.3oz)
acai powder: 1 tablespoon
macca root: 1 teaspoon
mixed berries: 6 oz / 170g about one cup
water: 200 ml

Mix in blender and drink while stretching. I have fine tuned this smoothie over the years and this mix seems to give the best recovery. It also follows my principle of consuming only natural foods (as much as possible from vegetable sources).
