The Dallas Marathon is in 2 weeks! It’s taper time! I cannot believe it is already here. It’s been a rough training season, but I think I am finally ready.
Training last week:
Monday: Light gym workout, stretching, abs, 10 minutes on the elliptical and sauna
Tuesday: Track workout, 8×300 with 200 recovery, 2 mile warm up, 2 mile cool down
Wednesday: Rest day
Thursday: 15 miles
Friday: Shopping (this would be cross training!)
Saturday: 4 miles
Sunday: Gym day, elliptical, abs, upper body weights and sauna
I’ve been using Nuun to hydrate for a few years now. I’ve used it exclusively this training season to see if it that alone will keep my dehydration headaches away. Between water and Nuun tabs it’s been a pretty good season. Nuun sent me these 3 flavors to start with and I’ve already gone through them and purchased more.
I received free product to try. I was asked to write a review. All opinions are my own.
I really like the Lemonade and the Lemon Lime. I do mix up my Nuun the night before, it helps get the fizzies out and gets it good and cold for the next morning. I suggest leaving the top open though. The tab has sugar-free electrolytes that dissolve in water. The tube makes it easy to throw in a gym bag. You can also break them in half for smaller bottles. I will throw a few in a baggy to carry on race day.
I grabbed this Nuun energy recently but haven’t tried it yet. I’ll get on that so I can let you know if I like it too!
Nuun Hydration has a Cyber Monday sale with 30% today! There’s free shipping and $20 four-packs. Grab a friend or 3 and share a pack to get started.
On Thanksgiving morning my group ran their long run so we wouldn’t have to over the weekend. We all definitely earned our turkey that day! I also earned a shirt and medal for a virtual Turkey Trot with through our running club. Last years shirt is one of my favorite long sleeve t-shirts.
I did a little Black Friday shopping again this year. It’s a shop til ya drop day for me and my friend Alisha. I snagged an early present for my family, the Nutri Bullet. I love it!
And my new MRTT tank and car magnet came in, so exciting!
Did you race this weekend?
Any big races coming up?
