Wow, it was sure hot outside yesterday! At 5:30 am when I headed out it was already 80 degrees! I pushed through 5 miles but should have had some coconut water with me instead of just plain water. By the time I got done I was starving (once again, I think there is a trend here and I need to eat something light right at 5 am when I get up) and felt kinda sick. Once I had some protein powder with coconut water I was feeling much better.
I opted to sleep in a bit this am (threat of storms and was caught in one two weeks ago – don’t need that again) and will be heading out soon to get my 3 miles done. Good thing it is only 82 now, lol, but I am well fed and only have 3 miles to do.
How does everyone try and beat the heat when running? Im thinking I will start keeping coconut water in my bottle to help replenish the necessary nutrients that I’m sweating out in addition to maybe starting a bit earlier.
Happy Running and Stay Cool!
