I'm Listening

After all your wonderful comments and advice in regards to my post yesterday, I decided to can my short run yesterday afternoon and head home to relax. I have been going going going all week and with trying to get over this sinus infection, I was starting to run out of gas. I was going to do my short run this morning, but instead chose to sleep in and rest. I need to just chilax a bit.

Thank you all, for being my voice of reason!

In addition to that, many of you made comments about my cramping while swimming, saying that it was probably due to not getting enough electrolytes. Many of you suggested trying Nuun. I do happen to have a package of Nuun in my cupboard but just have never tried it. I guess I just never knew when the right time was to take it. Any suggestions?

Well, I am off to work... and then heading home to Bismarck this afternoon! Happy Friday, everyone!

I carry nuun on all of my shorter runs instead of water. If you take a water bottle to masters, drop a nuun tablet in there. Same at the gym for spinning or whatever. Perhaps try it for a week and see if the cramping is better..

I have no experience with Nuun so I can't offer any advice there. I am happy though that you took some rest time and got some extra sleep. Sometimes that makes all the difference!

I hope the Nuun helps!

Have a great weekend!!

An hour or two before your workout eat a banana. Craping will be gone.

I know nada about nuun (sorry...couldn't help it).

Rest is often a good thing.

I gotta go learn more about nuun now :-)

I always have banana before a pool workout, or sometimes an eng muffin. And I always bring a sports drink with me!

Just ran across your blog. Love it. I've been at physical therapy for the last 3 months learning how to work on my core strength - ordering the book today! Looking forward to following you :)

Last night (before I read your blog) I was swimming with a pro triathlete and she was talking Nuun up big time (they don't even sponsor her so this was genuine endorsements). She said it was a great way to get the electrolytes without a lot of calories. I want to give it a try too. Keep us posted.

Melissa said...

Good job on getting some rest. I hope you are feeling better.

Michelle said...

Nuun rocks! I use it after long runs and I use a whole tablet in 16 oz of water, but I secretly want to drink it all the time...

Beth said...

I like to dring Nuun while I am swimming. For some reason, plain water is hard for me to choke down when swimming. The Nuun has a refreshing taste. I hope you are over your infection soon!

Holly said...

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend at home!

Kelly said...

I just realized that I asked about your TriPower and I am totally not a new follower and did know what it was last year and then just forgot haha. I'm glad you are taking a rest though, thats the only way you are going to get better!

hope you are having a grea weekend! I don't use Nuun...I'm a complete dolt at getting in enough water during runs

Jon Gilchrist said...

i takeit before my session...right before it..because I've always had a cramping issue during my swims. I use endurolytes and salt stick tablets.

Jess said...

I have "Nuun" experience with Nuun. Ha! See what I did? i'm always so proud of myself when I can sneak a pun in.

Keep a close watch on your sinus infection. Those things can sneak back on you with a vengeance.
