Before the Run
Time it up. “When doing early-morning trail runs you are not going to be well-hydrated to start. It’s nearly impossible,” Griffin says. “So plan to drink fluids during the run or put a focus on rehydration when returning from the run.”
You do you. “There really is no foolproof formula for how much to drink prior to starting a run,” Griffin says. “It really depends on the athlete.”
Age and athletic potential come into play, but so does the certain workout—how extended and tough you program to run—and the climate situations, temperature and vertical obtain. Finding your private hydration harmony requires some trial and error.
Enjoy a cup of Joe. Coffee and tea are not going to dehydrate you, so it is OK to stick to that morning ritual prior to a trail run, according to Griffin. “Though I would still recommend getting in some plain water,” she cautions. Think about finding in at least two glasses of lemon water just before that initial cup of Joe.
