Made sure to get some cryotherapy treatment time after the race today at @cryowave in Manhattan Beach, CA. Great service, very knowledgeable staff, and solid experience. 3 minutes of much needed recovery. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈβœŠπŸ½β„οΈπŸŒ¬#cryowave #manhattanbeach #california #amaesh #ff #follow #cryotherapy #recovery #followme #distancerunner #militaryathlete #racewalker #racewalk #shoreathleticclub #iphone6s #iphonephotography

So yesterday I competed in my first National level Championship/Trials at the 2017 U.S. Track & Field Pan Am Cup Race Walk Cup Trials. This was the 20km race walk trials to make the US National team which will represent TEAM USA in Lima, Peru next month for the IAAF PANAM RACE WALK CUP. This event was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Fairmount Park and was on a 1,000m loop which we covered 20 times. The event featured Olympians, American record holders, and current TEAM USA members. On the Men's side you had Olympian (US Army WCAP) John Nunn, and on the Women's side Olympians - Maria Michta Coffey, aMiranda Melville, and Katie Burnett (recently broke the American 50km record in January). *

I went out with a goal of crossing the finish line, not receiving any red cards or disqualification, and learning more about the event since it is still new to me. I also wanted to finish in the top 10, but given my short time of training for race walking it was a big goal. *
*
I achieved crossing the line, not receiving any red cards/disqualification, and I learned a lot. I didn't break into the top 10 Americans range but out of the 19 American males entered I finished 14th (some did not finish and some were disqualified). Race walking is a very technical event and though one could be very fast, it doesn't always mean they could win because it comes down to technicalities and form. If the referee sees a competitor exhibiting improper form, they are given warning cards and or a red card which would risk being disqualified. There are a lot more to think about in this event than just track events alone. *
*
All in all, I am hungry for more. I want to succeed in this event and grow. I really learned a lot from the Amazing athletes I met and will take these lessons and advice to my training. Now to rest these tired legs in some ice. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈβœŠπŸ½πŸƒπŸΎ#usatf #racewalk #amaesh #racewalker #philadelphia #ff #followme #follow #2020vision #olympictrials2020 #20km #20kmwalk #walkthisway #wanderlust #technical #form #thiseventistough #respect #instagram #instawalk #instawalktokyo #militaryathlete #shoreathleticclub #usaf #courage #dedication #determination #inspire #achieve

That post-workout flow (music by W&W @wandwmusic - What You Need) the beat got me through my final few kilometers. Only 22 days till the Nationals/Trials. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸƒπŸΎπŸ™πŸ½ #racewalk #racewalking #amaesh #usatf #militaryathlete #usaf #usatfnj #trackandfield #followme #ff #endurance #enduranceathlete #essentiawater #nuun #newbalance #shoreathleticclub #racewalkers #nuunlife #liveclean #2020vision #walkthisway

TB to almost a week ago at the 2017 USATF 20km Nationals/PAN AM Race Walk Cup Trials held in Philadelphia, PA. Definitely an honor to toe the line with these amazing athletes. It's a new journey for me and I learned a lot from this race. The story isn't done yet, that was just the first chapter. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈβœŠπŸ½πŸƒπŸΎβ˜πŸΎπŸ™πŸ½#walkmore #amaesh #ff #follow #usatf #philadelphia #racewalk #followme #militaryathlete #racewalker #usaf #pennsylvania #nuunlove #nuunlife #shoreathleticclub #walkthisway #2020vision #instafitness #instagood #instatravel #wanderlust #20km #20kmwalk #nikond3000 #nikonphotography *

PC: @love_kind πŸ“Έ- THANK YOU!

Well...this happened. Earned a silver medal in my first 3,000m race walk at the 2017 USATF New Jersey Association Indoor Open & Masters Championships. Time wasn't what I wanted, but I didn't get one foul, finished strong, negative split, and learned a lot. I stuck with the plan my Coach set for me and heeded the advice of some legends in the sport. It was a good day! One of many more to come! @coache πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‘πŸ½πŸ“·πŸƒπŸΎπŸ₯ˆ #usatf #racewalk #racewalker #shoreac #shoreathleticclub #amaesh #followme #ff #distancerunnersdoitlonger #endurance #usatfnj #follow #instagram #instadaily #newbalance #militaryathlete

Always have to put the best back into your body post workout. It's all about replenishing nutrients, and increasing recovery with what's right. I always use cherries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, black chia seeds from @thechiaco and vegan proteins from @vega_team which I then combine with some Himalayan pink salt and coconut milk.

Enjoying the 123rd running of the PENN RELAYS @pennrelays on a beautiful day in Philly. Had a chance to cheer on a fellow race Walker and friend @alexthewalker as he took the win in the Olympic Development 10k racewalk. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸƒπŸΎ#pennsylvania #amaesh #trackandfield #relays #racewalking #pennrelays #ff #follow #usatf #militaryathlete #shoreathleticclub #instagood #philadelphia #followme #track #miler #distancerunner #iphone6s #iphonephotography #instagram

I've been using @nuunhydration since 2008 if I can remember correctly and it has gone with me on every mission, to every race, and on every workout. I love the 0 sugar electrolytes because it doesn't leave you with that sugar over load on your teeth feeling. It's a product that is very easy to take with me wherever I go, and always tastes good. I've been combining this with the high PH water from @essentiawater which has become my go-to water for training on the go. The goal is an Olympic standard in race walking and I have a lot of work to do in the mean time.

Pre-race game plan...after meeting and speaking with some of the competitors in tomorrow's race - all of whom are super humble and personable, and inspiring - I return to my room, some @californiapizzakitchen in hand for the carbs I enjoy...and a huge O on my shorts as I root on my Oregon Ducks! + 200 pages of reading for class (boo!) lol πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈβœŠπŸ½πŸƒπŸΎ#usatf #nationals #racewalk #panamcupracewalktrials #amaesh #ff #followme #militaryathlete #racewalker #2020vision #usaf #follow #philadelphia #pennsylvania #20km #iphone6s #iphonephotography #instagood #ig_daily #shoreathleticclub#goducks #oregonducks
