This is the time of year when runners and cyclists alike yearn for those warm spring days that feel like they’re just around the corner. The novelty of wearing that new foul weather gear your mom gave you for Christmas wore off back when you were still following your New Year’s resolution.
However, the glory days of spring training are still a few weeks away, and (especially if you live near us in the Bay Area) it’s still cold and it’s still wet out there.
When you’re shivering and soaked, the last thing on your mind is that water bottle you filled up before leaving the house. But, even when it’s cold and wet, your body is still sweating and you’re losing important moisture with every breath you take.
Here are a few Pro Tips that can help you keep the fluids flowing and maintain good hydration during nasty weather:
Hot hydration – take a tip from Caitlin and mix up some hot Lemon Tea Hydration Drink Mix in your thermos or insulated water bottle. Sipping on hot tea is a lot better than forcing down cold liquid.
