I Bought A Three Day Juice Cleanse in a Moment of Desperation (and Curiosity)

February 21, 2018   /   byrunningwhilevegan  / Categories :  Uncategorized

I bought a three day, Pressed Juicery cleanse in January, and I absolutely loved it. I loved having all those juices, everyday. I didn’t cleanse per se, but I did drink about three to four green juices a day for the course of about five days! AND IT WAS AWESOME. I had just been pretty sick, and had a half marathon coming up, I wasn’t f’king around. I already lost important training days, and desperate times call for desperate measures. I drank juice on the train to work, at work, on the train home from work. I supplemented juices with meals, which is what I mean when I say I didn’t cleanse. I got the shipment of juices early in the week we were going to Arizona for a RnR half marathon. I really believe getting all those nutrients helped me. I honestly didn’t know how Arizona was going to go after being so sick the week before, but I was set on running it. I felt good come the weekend of the race and travels. My finish time suffered, but given the circumstances, it was still a strong race. The next weekend in Pasadena I was able to shave about 12 minutes off my half marathon, which only shows how much I was still healing when running in Arizona.

This beautiful array of colors!

Given the opportunity, I would definitely purchase another round of juices! I know I could stretch a one day cleanse to three days (supplementing regular meals). They were just so beautiful in my refrigerator, it made me so happy. The dream is get my own juicer, and have enough counter space to make my own juices (the last few years in SoCal I’ve severely lacked counter and kitchen storage space); for now store bought is more than fine!

    Los Angeles Marathon Finisher! 2018 Edition! – Running While VEGAN / 30 Mar

    […] I did an 18 mile and a 20 mile training run for this race, as well as smaller runs throughout the weeks. I was never very happy about how my longer training runs were going, specifically how long they were taking me to complete. I knew even if I didn’t make my goal time, these runs would prevent me from getting injured, by training my body for the distance. I didn’t get the speed work or hills I wanted in, but I also knew if I was dead-set on a goal time, I wouldn’t have run the Rock’n Roll Marathon in San Antonio in December, the last of my three-marathons-in-three-months endeavor. That recovery took some time, and by the time I was feeling ready to run again, the holidays came around, and with them, cold and flu season. […]
