It’s here, it’s finally here! That magical place called SUMMER, where the days are long, the nights are short, and the workouts are well...sweaty. So whether you're training for your first 5k or a longer race come fall, how you hydrate in the heat is as imperative to your routine as your long run.
From muscle recovery to athletic endurance, the right balance of carbs, fat, sodium and electrolytes are crucial components to maintaining your competitive edge. So as we stare down our goals and load up on our greens, we’ve added a kick of caffeine to the surplus(es) of the season, combining cucumbers (for hydration), mint (to tame the tummy), and matcha to rev up your metabolism, steady your mind, promote concentration, and even enhance your mood .. all before those coveted cardio endorphins kick in!
Ready to sip your way to a stronger, more satisfying summer? Let’s do it!
