A long run on little hydration

Do you ever go for a run and within the first steps, you know that you are either dehydrated or just not warmed up properly?  Well today this happened to me.  I woke up early with the determination to run 12 miles before going to work.  Within the first mile, I could tell that the entire run would be a struggle- and I was right.  Each mile got harder and harder but I wasn’t going to give up.  I am usually stubborn enough to get through a run like this even if it’s just awful.  Either way, I completed all 12 miles, slower than I wanted, but at least I got through it.   To say the least, I drank more water and gatorade today than I have in a long time!

Tip of the Day:  HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE!!! Even when you feel like you aren’t thirsty, still drink water!
