8 Running “Rules” You Can Safely Ignore

Athletic man running uphill, outdoor.

Runners, new and experienced, have all heard certain “rules.” Rules like:

  • Don’t increase your mileage by more than 10% each week, and
  • Take days off from running to stay healthy.

It’s hard and fast advice on how to train, recover, and experience the sport. But can you trust them?

In today’s episode we call out some of the running advice we’ve all heard (maybe even shared), and flip it on it’s head.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Running with headphones
  • How to increase your mileage
  • Trail running gear
  • Recovery period after a race
  • Doug’s 442 run streak
  • Minimalism vs. zero drop

Everything that Might Be Missing from Your Plant-Based Diet (and Nothing Else!)



1bottle-square-no-sub-250I believe that plant-based is the healthiest way you can eat -- both for how you feel and perform in the short term, and for long-term health. But there are a few nutrients that are hard to get from plants, and I didn't want to take a whole multivitamin with so much extra that I'm already getting from my food. That's why I created Complement Plus, the perfect nutrient formula for plant-based athletes.

Complement Plus brings together, in one place, the essential nutrients that are missing from a reasonably diverse, whole food plant-based diet:
  • B12
  • D3
  • DHA/EPA Omega-3s
  • K2
  • Minerals like zinc, iodine, and selenium
It's everything that might be missing from your plant-based diet, with nothing extra. Click here to learn more.
