Nutrition: Water

#trainingtipthursday 👟 Don’t forget to hydrate! 💧💦

You can’t go wrong with water. Proper hydration will keep the heart-rate low & improve performance. According to recent studies, a 150-pound athlete loses more than a half-gallon of water a day, not including workouts. It is crucial that endurance athletes consume water throughout the day to stay well-hydrated. You should drink at least 8 cups of water per day. Hydration during training is necessary for top performance & in warm conditions, it is absolutely crucial for your health. Since all athletes sweat at different rates, you should practice drinking during all your workouts to get an idea of how much water your will require during your race. The rule I have found most helpful is to drink a minimum of 55% of my body weight (100 pounds, 55 ounces).

Sports drinks like Gatorade or Powerade also aid in hydration & have the added benefits of carbohydrates & electrolytes. (Fruit juices are also good because they supply other nutrients, but try to limit sugary drinks like soda.)

Can’t believe that next Thursday many of us will be ready for the RunDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend!

Hope to see many of you at our pop up shop.
