Jaryd Clifford's recovery tip

Start your recovery after a run with this tip from Paralympian Middle Distance Runner Jaryd Clifford.

 

Q: What does healthy living mean to you?

Healthier living is to live life actively, passionately, and happily. It is a way of life that lends itself to the belief that every day holds potential for something special. Through the positivity of healthy living, a person can strive to be the best version of themselves. When we live healthier lives with passion and happiness, anything is possible. 

Q: Why do you think it's important to lead a healthy lifetyle?

A healthy lifestyle is a lifestyle that encourages confidence, high self-esteem, and an abundance of happiness. Without these elements of life, a person might find it difficult to summon the energy for each new day. During some of my darkest moments, going for a run was the one thing that I could rely on to get me going again. Being active is exhilarating, it can lead to meeting new friends, and it’s something you can work on each day to see new progress. Fundamentally, a healthy life is a happy life. 

Q: What's your best healthy food tip?

I run 150km a week, so eating healthy and nutritious food is essential for my success. Throughout my childhood, Mum managed to keep me on my feet by providing a seemingly infinite amount of fresh fruit and vegetables. At dinner, more than half my plate was filled with a colourful array of different vegetables. To this day, fresh fruit and vegetables play an important role in my Paralympic achievements.

Supercharge it

The fiber and healthy fats in avocado are what make it a superfood for long lasting energy stores. It also contains many of the B vitamins that help with your red blood cell count which in turn helps regulate your iron levels!
