Pep up your prep time
We know the feeling: you’ve had a long day at the office, and you’re struggling to stay motivated long enough to lace up and hit the pavement. To get over the afternoon slump and out on the road, lift your energy by spritzing uplifting and invigorating Energy Revitalizing Face & Body Mist over your head and breathing deeply. While you’re prepping to get out the door, roll the refreshing power of Peppermint Halo Cooling & Soothing Oil Blend on your legs for the natural motivation you need to crush those miles with a pep in your step.
Pick up the pace
In your training plan, there’s probably going to be some days running on hills. When it feels like you’re running uphill both ways, carry some Energy Revitalizing Oil Blend in your running belt. Take off the lid, inhale deeply, then roll some on your pulse points just before you start to climb. The combination of rosemary, peppermint, basil and lemon will carry you right to the top and back again – and again, and again.
You did it! You geared up, got out there, and now it’s time to give those hardworking muscles the support they deserve. The same cooling blast in Peppermint Halo that helped you get out the door is also your go-to once you’ve kicked off those runners and want to refresh your overworked muscles. Roll it on in combination with Pain Release Oil Blend, a topical analgesic oil blend that will bring calming, analgesic relief to aching muscles and joints.
To help your body relax even more and get you set for a restful sleep, try soaking in a warm bath with Après Sport Bath, Body Oil, then smoothing on Muscle Melt Comforting Body Butter to replenish moisture after sweating out the miles.
Pounding the pavement isn’t always easy, but choosing natural support can be. Good luck with reaching your goal – you’ve got this!
