This post coming to you from Lake Tahoe, this time at 7700 ft (2362m). Have you heard about using beet juice or supplements for training? Beets and green leafy veggies are high in nitrates, which can help with oxygen capacity and performance. It's shown to be helpful for athletes at altitude. More research is needed, but it looks promising! Try adding beets to salads, smoothies, and as a side dish. Spinach and arugula (rocket) are also nitrate-rich. 🥗
Quick indoor sesh today. Legs felt refreshed after 4 (!!) days of no running. Thank you @evolution_healthcare_fitness for the altitude training! Best training facility and sports healthcare in #Portland !
Bloody good 30km run/hobble high in the mountains today. Was bloody freezing and wet. I was starving and had no food or #infinitoz with me 😰 (bad move by me) But I made it out thanks to 2 nodoz I found in my pocket. Got out without snapping my ankles which is always a plus on terrain like this. Hopefully the pins hold together for hell of the south tomorrow, Last elite series race for the year. #mountaingoat#ironmantraining#altitudetraining#gainzbruh#doyoueven#worlderunners
All the best to our sponsored athlete @sugar_neekz who is fighting at Punches At The Park in Melbourne tonight! Neeks⠀

Our camps are designed to cater to runners of all levels. Fun runners, recreational runners, club runners, competitive runners and fast runners
all we see is runners
Nothing can stop me, I'm all the way up.
There is a lot of hype around altitude training for endurance performance. - -
The research regarding its effectiveness and the optimal protocol is conflicting and undecided. However, the general consensus seems to be that living at altitude adapts the body to low oxygen and low atmospheric pressure environments. Increasing oxygen transportation.
Training high-intensity at closer to sea-level may allow athletes to work harder and warrant greater aerobic adaptations and performance increases. 😤🚴♀️🗻⛰️🏃♂️
Working with Ian Kiprono a key member of David Rudisha's team on some hip mobility and counter rotation - as your hip moves forward you upper body counter rotates to attain balance. His must happen around a stable core in the middle/torso
When the body knows what to do it just happens naturally. Unfortunately our busy western lives dictate that many of the human bodies nornal and natural movements are no longer second nature to us and must be relearned in our adult years if we are to regain balance, full health and enjoyable pain free running.
Songok putting in some training of his own!
He may be 'retired' into the role of Head of Guest Relations at The Kenya Experience but he still likes to think he can give most of our guests a run for their money! 😀
When you live in a place like this it does seem silly not to keep running just because your not competing

My heart beat through the shirt while mountain biking at altitude. Garmin wrist watch definitely isn’t the most accurate device for measuring HR, but an average of 157 for 3.5 hours is significant regardless. I’d call it good training. #altitudetraining
Inspiring the next generation
Maybe, but I think they were just enjoying the moment running alongside Sophie-Marie during our August Camp
Flip flops don't hold you back when you are running with passion in your heart
My family are visiting these days and the first thing they got to experience was the lobo train on a Tuesday morning workout. My best workout so far this semester, 5*(400m-1k-400m) 60sec rest and 90sec rest between sets. We started of easy and build into it. (74-3:07-74), (73-3:05-72), (70-3:01-71), (68-2:58-68) & (68-2:54-65). Starting to fell better and getting back into shape. #AltitudeTraining#DeGamleOgHamDenLangePåBesøg#Hygge
