Over the past year as I nursed an injury related to plantar fasciitis, I gained over twenty pounds. This one marathon maniac mom became an overweight depressed lethargic sedentary lump. Through my physician’s care, I learned that I was seriously Vitamin D deficient which may have been one of the factors that contributed to my injury and depression.
During that year, I rediscovered the importance of proper rest and taking probiotics for gut health and supplements for repairing and rebuilding. Although not a new concept, it took me facing a serious injury to learn that lesson firsthand.
Despite my efforts of eating right and working out, I undid all my efforts by not getting enough sleep and by not taking supplements. In fact, during my hiatus from running, I discovered that I could always miss a workout or push back a workout to later in the day or week, but I could never make up lost sleep.
With 2017 just around the corner, I have set some new fitness goals for myself (including running the Daytona Beach Half Marathon – my first half marathon in over almost two years) all while remembering the important lessons I learned from my time off from running. No matter my fitness goals, taking care of myself through proper rest and vital supplements will be at the forefront.
