Happy NATIONAL RUNNING DAY everyone!
Pretty excited to run this afternoon. And then run a tiny bit with Kyle + strength workout (he hasn’t agreed to the running part yet…)
No workout on Tuesday. Decided to give the ole knee a rest and just move my rest day from Friday to Tuesday.
Now, I’m super excited to tell you guys something! I’ve been keeping it a secret, waiting for the right time to share the news andddddd *pause for dramatic effect*
I am a now a proud ambassador of Ignite Naturals!
If you have never heard of Ignite Naturals, they make
100% all-natural sports nutrition and dietary supplements
I was drawn to them because I am a salty sweater. Yep. Super hawt.
I found that when I ran >7 miles, even with proper hydration during my run, I could not get those electrolytes back in my body. Post run I would try coconut water, Nuun, and sports drinks (which I hate). I would feel dehydrated and have a headache the rest of the day. As much as I love Nuun and the naturalness of coconut water, the only thing that worked were those highly processed sports drinks with enough food coloring to dye your poo. I wanted a more natural option. Enter, Ignite Naturals.
I now use InRefresh immediately after my longer runs, which
uses 100% plant-based high quality real food ingredients that are in as close to their natural state as possible
Here’s what I found when trying InRefresh:
- Cured my post-longer-run dehydration issues
- Made from NATURAL ingredients
- 100% plant based/VEGAN
- Fruity taste
- Stevia aftertaste
So far this is the only con I’ve found while using InRefresh. I hate the taste of Stevia and artificial sweeteners. You know that aftertaste you get when drinking a diet drink (even the natural kinds that use Stevia)? Well this has it too.
Honestly I don’t care though. I typically chug my post-run drink so I’m not savoring it like a cup of coffee. I’d rather stick to the all-natural ingredient option.
Anyone interested in trying?? Well, I have a special off for you!
10% off if you use the code: IN00353 (this will be posted in my sidebar if you forget)
If you try it, let me know what you think!
And finally, 2 songs
I need to preface this list by saying I don’t think I have 2 favorite songs. But these 2 songs were the first to pop in my head and they always make me smile.
1. A Wink and a Smile, Harry Connick Jr.
From Sleepless in Seattle, another adorable movie that I need to rewatch.
2. The Good Life, Frank Sinatra version
Are you running today (or have you)???
What do you use to hydrate?
