Water, Water, Water
Updated: Jan 5
As we’re in the midst of lots of celebrations this week, or at least trying to celebrate in the midst of a hard year, let’s talk a bit about hydration. Since our move, one of the biggest things I've struggled with is hydration.
Making sure you have the right hydration can:
Regulate body temperature
Minimize cramping (including those awful GI cramps!)
When we run, the problem gets even worse. I know in winter when it’s cold, downing a bottle of water doesn’t always seem appealing. Some things I've started doing to help make sure I get 100 oz of water a day...
Water before coffee. Drink 1 glass of water before my coffee.
Use an app or set an alarm. I have a water bottle with times on it. If I follow it, it's 64 oz (swipe to see it!)
Water before meals. Drink a glass of water before I eat a meal.
Warmed up Nuun (have you tried their rest line??? The Vanilla Blackberry is my faveeee!)
Recommendations on how much water to drink vary, but AT LEAST 64 oz on non-run days + enough to add back in anything you lost on a run/workout day.
Do you drink enough water?
