It's the holiday season and time to find that perfect gift for your runner that is over 50, or if you're that runner, to share a hint to your partner!
The following are 5 great gifts that complement the Forever Runner Method and helps us older runners continue to be healthy and fit as we age.
If you are looking for the best reference book for runners over 50, Primal Endurance is the best. This book covers it all; How to slow down, balance out and chill out. Learn the right way for low heart rate training, low carb, high fat eating, strength training and sprinting. The perfect complement to my Forever Runner Method training.
Training with the right heart rate monitor is crucial for tracking progress and identifying your level of training stress. I like the Garmin 235 because it not only is a wrist based monitor, but it also measures cadence, an important measurement of your running efficiency. You also get Garmin Connect to view anything you would ever want to know about your runs. You don't need to spend a ton of money to get an effective heart rate monitor.
If you've followed me for any length of time, you know I'm a morning smoothie guy. I happen to have an old school Waring blender, but if you want to get the smoothie maker that the pros at Cooks Country use, pick up the Breville Fresh & Furious. A quality blender that will does way more than make perfect smoothies.
After listening to all the hype, we finally picked up this Instant Pot. Now I know what everyone was raving about. It does the job of a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker and saute/browning pan. If you don't know what to do with it or you already have one and need a kick ass cookbook, look below.
I recently read an article that more and more people are giving experiences as gifts rather than stuff. So I decided to offer a special deal for my online, group coaching, 8 week Forever Runner training program that starts the first week of January.
If you purchase a spot for yourself, I'll give a free spot for your spouse, family member or training partner. This is limited to 10 spots. If interested, email me at [email protected] and I'll share the details.
Hope this helps,
* I partner with amazon so by purchasing using one of my links, I will be paid a huge fee!
