The what, the why, the how, the when.
Electrolyte circulation? Check
Fluid absorption on point? Affirmative.
Increased endurance performance? Oh, heck yea!
How is it that you reach this state of hydration bliss you ask? Two words: hyper-hydration. We’ve seen a growing popularity in the practice of pre-loading electrolytes over the last couple of years, and studies have pointed back to increased performance during endurance exercise as a result! Nuun’s hyper-hydration guide provides the basics of what you need to know before adding this hydration tactic into your long-haul regimen.

It’s time to start making the most of your commute to work! Running or biking to work is a great way to reduce your personal carbon footprint, fit in a workout on a busy day and diffuse stress before/after a work day.
While traffic jams are wiped off of the commute obstacle list, active commutes present a handful of unique twists. So, in order to reap the benefits of your run/bike commute, it pays to be prepared.
As the weather warms and dries up, following a few helpful pro-tips will help you to get the most out of your newly defined “rush hour!"
For the last 10 years, I’ve ridden bicycles thousands of miles from mountain biking to road racing to cyclocross. I’m not the best or fastest, but I love cycling for the fun and the fitness that comes with it. Over the last 10 years, I’ve also run a total of about 20 miles.
Twelve weeks before my first half-marathon, I wouldn’t have considered myself a “runner”. (For those cyclists who aren’t familiar, running is what you do when you get a flat tyre at the Tour de France.) I thought that committing to a 12-week training plan would be a good challenge. Even if, at the time, the thought of running 6, 8, 10 or more miles was daunting and 13.1 miles seemed impossible. Then the running started and I learned that running is awesome.
Take a minute and think back to the last time you tried something for the FIRST time. For many of us, it’s been a while! Do you remember the feelings of being unfamiliar with your environment? Your peers? Your gear? Over time, the gained comfort in our respective sports can lead to blinders of these uncomfortable feelings that we have since overcome.
During the month of January, the Nuun crew embarked upon a fitness challenge that put each of us back in equal court: The Nuubie Challenge. We challenged each other to return to this place of discomfort and try something completely new. Some have discovered a new-found passion for new sport, and others discovered places that they would never return! All of these experiences were equally valuable and a reminder that we all start somewhere. The challenge was equal parts physical and mental and throughout the month, there were many lessons learned about how to find comfort in the discomfort.
You’ve heard it before and you’re about to hear it again:
Make time for rest days! Allow your body to recover! Come back stronger on the other side!
All joking aside, there are many elements of rest and recovery that make a massive difference in your overall performance. Throughout training, your body undergoes a significant amount of stress, breaking down your tissue. Rest days allows for proper recovery which in turn helps to prevent long term injury.
The good news is that this stress and tissue damage is minimal, and can be rebuilt and recovered through solid rest day plans. This stress and rebuild cycle is what ultimately creates long term strength and stamina!
Consider these 5 rest-day pro tips for your upcoming recovery days. Make the most of your recovery and be sure to share your rest success with the world. #restdaybrags
