So the plan for yesterday was to run 1-2 miles on my lunch break then run a few more miles in the evening time. I wanted to keep all these miles at a pretty steady pace not really running them too hard. Well yesterday it was in the 80's here in AZ, so what do I forget to do?
Thats right, properly hydrate myself!! WHAT WAS I THIKING?? What a stupid thing to do. Belive me I got a pretty good lecture from my Fiance when I got home. As we are getting ready for dinner, my stomach is feeling a bit upset, and I have a pretty bad headache. AFTER the lecture, I start chugging water like crazy, get some food in my stomach and I started to feel a lot better.
As I was laying down for bed and even as I was driving into work this morning, I cant stop thinking about how that one mistake could of derailed everything I have been doing lately. I could of easily gotten an injury from the lack or water or worse I could of really ran into some issues on the mountain yesterday with it being so hot. I've learned my lesson and right now at 6:10 in the morning, I'm two bottles of water down and dont plan to stop LOL.
Have you ever failed to properly hydrate for a run/hike? What do you do to make sure you have the proper amount of water for the day or for your training?
Trying to get a lot of water in my body so I will be skipping the trail run today and just jogging a few miles later this evening when it is much cooler.
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
