Whether you're superstitious or not, we all have our race day rituals. From wearing our lucky socks to rocking out to pump up jams to eating the right breakfast, these routines help us feel ready for anything as we toe the start line. But have you ever wondered how professional athletes prepare for competition? We did, so we asked a few of our elite athletes to share their rituals with us. We were happy to hear they still get nervous before a race, too!Read More
Here's another one of my favorite tasty, vegan soups that you can whip up over the weekend and enjoy all week! Best part? You can have it as a side dish, or add some rice noodles or sushi rice as the base for a more complete meal.Read More
Yoga has a plentitude of well-known benefits, but like getting enough sleep, eating well, or staying hydrated (though nuun can surely help with that!), it is sometimes an activity which we know is good for us but don’t quite do often enough.
Life is busy, messy, and occasionally chaotic, and sometimes the last thing we think we have time for is stretching on a mat. Yoga may feel like the last item on the “to do” list, but even ten minutes of yoga per day adds up over the long run—that’s 70 minutes per week, or more than 60 hours per year. Just a short daily yoga practice pays dividends to other areas of your well-being, so here are ways to ensure you make it to your mat.
Fartlek. That's fun to say!
For those who have never incorporated fartleks into your training, it's a style of speedwork that is designed to be flexible. they're unlike traditional track workouts where you run hard for a set distance then rest. Often, runners will sprint to a visible landmark, then rest, then pick another landmark and sprint. It's a great way to prepare for race day, when uneven terrain, bottlenecks, and competitors surging around you can lead to variations in pace.
We love keeping our hydration interesting by creating new nuun combos! Whether it's tea, juice, or other nuun flavors, there are endless opportunities for refreshing combinations. We still haven't found a flavor that mixes well with our morning coffee. But until then, here are some of our favorites to help you stay hydrated.Read More
'‘Beat your own best!’' are words to live by here at nuun. We are continually striving to push our boundaries and limitations in an effort to accomplish big, hairy, audacious goals. For someone, that might mean finally crushing your PR and finally getting that BQ. For another it might be overcoming your swimming fears and completing your first triathlon. For me? I decided to attempt two new distances within a year; a full Ironman and a 50K. Two things I thought I could/would never do. I finished my first half Ironman thinking, “Yup, I would never be able to double that.” I crawled across the line of my first marathon thinking, “I will never run further than this… ever!” Turns out, I was thinking too much about how I wouldn’t, not that I actually couldn’t, do those things.
So, the challenge was on! I was going to prove to myself that I had the dedication to push and train for two distances I thought I couldn’t do. Last year, I completed an Ironman and a 50K within 2 months of each other. AND since it was such an eye opening experience for me, I thought I would share a few tips, tricks and reasons why I think you can, and should, step up your game and go the distance as well!
