Here are some (just a few!) of my favorite things. Come back often for more!
Of course, over the years, I've found things that work and things that don't. There are books I think are worth reading and there are books best used to kill spiders with.
IsaPro Protein Powder
100% Organic, Un-denatured Whey Protein from a privately owned farm in New Zealand that only raises grass-fed cows. You can't get this in a store, so if you want it, contact me and I will put in an order for you!
This is the best "warm up" tool for any workout and the best "post workout" tool for better recovery. No athlete should leave home without one.
Pearlizumi Arm Warmers
I can't tell you how many times these have saved me. I take them everywhere in the cooler months. I travel with them too. You never know how cold it will be someplace and when you're having hot flashes, they come in handy because you can just rip them off and cool off your arms without taking off your shirt! Guys, you can wear them too as an added layer when running, cycling or hiking.
Triggerpoint Massage Ball and roller kit.
Home massage made simple! This cool little kit lasts forever and you can throw it in your gym bag for post workout relief. The ball is great for getting deep into the psoas, hip, performis, spinal erectors, neck and shoulders.
Whatever brand you like, make sure you have a good pair of trail shoes. Running on dirt can be a lot more unstable and having a shoe that properly rolls over rocks and won't slide can be the difference between a great workout and a visit to the orthopedist. My favorite is Asics and my favorite shoe store in the Valley is Roadrunners. They do a great "Shoe Dog" fit to get you in the perfect shoe for your feet!
