Starting Your Day Like An Olympian Is Easier Than You Think

by Kim Conley - July 12, 2021

Lively connected with Kim Conley, two-time Olympian and professional runner for New Balance, to get the scoop on how she started running, what it’s like to be an Olympian, how she fuels her runs and more!

Check out the Lively blog for more posts by Conley.

Almost every morning begins the same way: with a steaming mug of coffee and a bowl of delicious steel cut oats before getting ready for the day's workout.

The steel cut oats are a nutritious way to start the day, and give me an extra boost of protein via Vital Performance™ Protein ($29.99; shop now). And, since I am very mindful of my tendon and ligament health, I also incorporate Collagen Peptides ($25; shop now) into the recipe.

After breakfast, when my food has digested and the collagen is in my system, I do a series of exercises targeting the specific tendon and ligaments I want to bolster. Want to try my morning routine?

Here's how to take your breakfast to an Olympic level.

Steel Cut Oats Recipe

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Combine oats, milk, Collagen Peptides and protein.
  2. Microwave or prepare on the stove
  3. Mix in berries, cinnamon, walnuts
  4. Stir, top with more berries, enjoy!

Note: The oats can be made on the spot in the microwave or on the stove. Or, combine the ingredients in a jar and soak to make overnight oats.
