Training Update and Nuun Ambassador Program

Training Update - Sean O'Brien 50M
I'm continuing along with my SOB50 in unseasonably warm DC weather. Nothing like runing in shorts and a t-shirt mid-December!

For the most part, I'm continuing with low-ish mileage, in the 40-50 range, with one workout and long run per week. This is to give me a chance to chill out a bit and make sure I stay healthy. There are a few things I'm doing a little differently:

1. Focusing on hills: not super easy in DC, but they exist. I've found a pretty good trail route that I can use for long and short runs that will give me some decent gain. Without driving, there's just no way I can get enough climbing in near where I live.

Not a lot of gain, but repeats and out-and-backs help.
2. Focusing on recovery and staying healthy: this is nothing new for me, but I'm even more focused than ever. Work is not too crazy right now, so I'm taking more time on food and recovery effort than ever. This includes immediate post-workout replenishment, eating well, trying to sleep well, etc.

Ambassador Program
I'm excited to announce that I've been selected as a Nuun Ambassador for 2016! This is absolutely one of my favorite products, and I'm stoked to be part of the team.

What are you training for? Have you run SOB50? Any tips?
