The sun peeks up over the mountains and I get the familiar itch to head out to the canyon for my morning run.
It's Saturday morning and it's time to get out and run. This week has been tough with the move and the kids schedules and my own schoolwork that's been on my plate. As a busy Mom, I often get caught up in all of the little things going on and schedules and things that need to be done that I forget about taking some time for myself.
A nice weekend morning run to unwind and relax is going to be necessary today.
A run just kind of sorts everything out and makes everything right again.
It's also a challenge. Runs are a combination of mental and physical strength. There are days my mind fuels or breaks my workouts. There are times that my body just doesn't have anything to give and mentally pushing my body to it's limits is necessary. It's a combination of mind and body and you never know which one will fuel you through your workout.
I've also learned over the years of running and workouts that hydration and fueling your body properly are huge factors in what will happen during a workout. A body that's not property hydrated isn't going to perform well. A body that isn't fed well isn't going to be able to get you through those harder workouts, especially during the hotter summer month runs.
For today's workout I tried BodyArmor Lyte. I drank a half of the bottle before my workout, drank water from fountains up the canyon (it's much easier than packing water and drinks for the dog and I) and then drank the rest when I got home.
The peach mango is an amazing tasting sports drink that includes electrolytes and vitamins that fuel me during a workout. the drink is naturally sweetened with the delicious taste of coconut water. And it's only 20 calories per serving.
