The Flourishing Experiment

Part 2 of Jeff Galloway’s episode goes in depth and covers the following topics:

  • How to run faster (Wow! Bring on the 26 mile-long run BEFORE the marathon) and lower your time by 15 minutes
  • How to do speed repetitions the Jeff Galloway way
  • What a cadence drill and an acceleration glide are and why you need to know
  • How to avoid the slowdown of a marathon and achieve a negative split
  • Why Jeff recommends swimming and using an ElliptiGO (I’m a HUGE fan of the “Go!”) as cross training activities
  • What postural muscle strengthening exercises Jeff recommends
  • How a Galloway group works
  • Why Jeff Galloway is also a fan of Dr. Ratey’s work
  • Jeff’s response to the biggest misconception about running being that you have to run nonstop to be a runner
  • Why Jeff says “Take Charge of your Fatigue”
  • Why Jeff doesn’t “drag” people in to running a run-walk-run sequence
  • Jeff’s 13.1 Half Marathon in Atlanta on December 13th, which finishes in Piedmont Park

A runner and blogger who runs “Galloway Style”, Cambrey Fuller comes on the show as our Runner of the Week. Cambry shares how she was told she would need to use a cane if walking more than 200 hundred feet after having six surgeries on her ankle. Somehow, she has managed to go on to run 17 half marathons in 15 months including the Tinker Bell and Princess half marathons. By running, and surprising her doctor, not only is Cambry defying the odds, but she is thriving – especially after losing 180 pounds! This inspiring mom has thrown away her scale and focuses on how she feels and how her clothes fit. Cambry’s goal is to run the Auckland Marathon in 2016.

Serena Marie, RD, shares why she was so excited to read the article titled "Green vegetables, red meat and colon cancer: chlorophyll prevents the cytotoxic and hyper proliferative effects of haem in rat colon.", which was released by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), which is part of the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM), a branch of the National Institute of Health. As you may know, Serena Marie, RD, loves red meat, as it’s such a great source of iron. As runners, it’s common for us to have low iron counts. According to the article, as long as you have greens with your red meat, the risk for cancer may go down.

Serena shared the new vegetable she is OBSESSED with: lambs quarter. Just sauté with onions and voilà. I shared a test called InsideTracker that I was given to evaluate and have seen great results thanks to the in depth analysis InsideTracker revealed. I was given specific foods to eat to increase my low levels of iron, vitamin D, and testosterone. The test was taken back in February and showed normal levels of cortisol, which can be high for endurance athletes. It will be interesting to see test results as I train for the Chicago and NYC marathons.

Friendly reminder, Serena and I are running the Chicago and New York City marathons in support of Action for Healthy Kids. Action for Healthy Kids expands school breakfast and lunch programs to include healthy foods. They also provide grants to schools for much needed physical fitness equipment such as stability balls. A donation of $25 provides breakfast for an entire month for one student and $50 gives schools fitness equipment. Help us help the kids!
