Goodnight!!! It’s too 🌞freaking hot🌞 to be a runner right now down here in the Deep South! But I ain’t moving and I LOVE running so here are some tips on how I stay safe with running with the heat wave that is coming through!!!
💟STAY HYDRATED!!! If you don’t like water try some infused water with lemon/lime/mint OR strawberry and blueberries
💟PLAN YOUR RUNS!!! Use those weather apps! Check the morning and evening temperatures! And pick which time of day is best and safest for YOU! I prefer night runs 👌 but I guess I was feeling spiffy today and ran morning haha.
💟KNOW YOUR LIMITS! I know my limit to be able to function for the rest of the day means not running outside if heat index is above 92. NO THAT DOESNT MEAN YOU CAN SKIP A TRAINING DAY! Suck it up and run on the treadmill or an indoor track 😜.
💟If you do over do it… Don’t be afraid to take a rest day. Or cross train inside the next day at a lower intensity. For example if you were scheduled for a 5mile run which you would usually do a 50:00 then perform a low impact cardio activity indoor for 50min. IE: elliptical, cycle.
💟love yourself. Love your body. BE SMART! 😘😘😘
EGGS DONT HAVE TO BE FOR BREAKFAST!!! It’s weird to thing about why certain foods have a “stigma” for certain meal time 😂😂😂. My favorite dinner meal has for to be this easy egg white omelet with veggies 👌ON POINT!

✳️5 slices deli smoked turkey on the inside

My morning 🌅 view this am before my first race 🏃 of the “racing season for me”. Started it off with a 5k race for “RUNNING ON ISLAND TIME” in Merritt Island, Fl. Got some good meditating🙏 time in reflecting on past, present, and future while watching the Florida🌴 sun rise🌞🌞 with Jupiter and Venus. ⭐️Running has opened up and unlocked so many aspects of my life that I just can’t even put into words⭐️. This season (now-may) is going to be a growing one for me! Committing 120% to reach some high goals for me. ✳️✳️✳️I WANNA HEAR FROM YALL!!!
