Don’t Forget to Hydrate
As the summer cools off and we are entering the perfect temperatures of late summer/early fall I find my eating and drinking habits have suffered. During the summer it is very easy to remember to drink water and eat healthier. You can’t forget with the summer heat beating down on you as you ride, and amazing summer fruit and veggies available.
Constant Reminder to Hydrate
For the past couple weeks I haven’t been drinking water, and my hot coffee consumption has increased thanks to the sub 90º weather. Every morning last week I woke up with this hang over feeling, half of the feeling was due to lack of caffeine, the other half was being dehydrated.
Today I took a Camelbak Better Bottle into work with me, hooking it on to my bag for a constant reminder on the way in. When I arrived at work I took the bottle and sat it down right in front of me.
This is my quick public service announcement to remind everyone to drink a big cup of water before bed. We just received a small box of goodness from Camelbak of Insulated Better Bottles and Insulated Podium Bottles for review. Check in tomorrow for a preview!
nuun : A Hydration Review
Nutrition is an under used term for the novice cyclist or athlete. For the professional, it is the way of life. They run their engine like NASCAR builds their cars, with precision. For the past few months I’ve put my family in some sort of science experiment with various types of nutrition supplements and varieties.
nuun is a electrolyte replacement, with a little flare. These little tablets come in 8 flavors, and are kept in plastic tube to keep them readily available on long rides. With available flavors like Kona Cola, which tastes exactly like Coca Cola, and Lemon+Lime, tastes like Sprite, or Banananuun. My personal favorites will always be the fruity styles like Citrus Fruit or Tri-Berry.
The flavor isn’t the only unique feature of Nuun.
