COUNTING DOWN TO MOODY STREET 5K
We are so pumped for the upcoming Moody Street road race. With several weeks training under our belts we thought it would be a good idea to posts some helpful training tips on the blog. Make sure you continue to log in & check out the latest posts!
Hydration – The goal of drinking fluids during exercise is to prevent dehydration and maintain performance. 4 – 6 ounces of fluids should be consumed every 15 to 20 minutes during a run/walk. Most people remember to drink fluids during a work out but pre and post workout hydration is equally as important.
- Stick to regular water – Avoid hidden sugars and calories by sticking to simple H2O. If you need to add variety try adding lemon, lime, or oranges slices to your water for a natural flavoring.
- Drink regularly throughout the day rather than try to get in all your consumption at one point of the day. A general rule of thumb is to drink half your body weight in ounces daily. (If you weigh 200 pounds, aim for 100 ounces throughout the day).
