Running outside gives me a sense of freedom. This gives me an opportunity to run on grass or on an outside track. Cardio is important to me, but sometimes I only have about 15 minutes to get what I need to done.
Before I begin any workout for the day, I make sure I’m prepared to stay hydrated. Including BODYARMOR SportWater into my daily routine, in addition to my minimum 64 ounces of water, makes it easy to reach my goal.
The new BODYARMOR Sportwater is an Alkaline Water with pH 9+. It’s sold at Southeastern Grocers, including BiLo, and can be found in the water aisle.
Hydration is key before, during, and after an intense workout, and BODYARMOR Sportwater is designed to give that all-day hydration for those who want better.
The best way to get the cardio my body needs in fifteen minutes is to run sprints. I prefer to run with a partner, but running solo is no problem either.
Before I start sprinting, I stretch to loosen up and then jog a bit. I jog 80 to 100 yards up and down the field a couple of times to loosen any muscle tightness.
I increase my speed by the third lap and on the fourth lap, I run a little faster.
By this time, my heart rate has increased and I’m warmed up.
All of the remaining laps that I run from here on out are at the fastest speed that I can run. The amount of laps that I run may differ each time. It all depends on how my body feels that particular day.
The whole time, I’m been keeping track of my heart rate because there is a lot of physical exertion going on. I have no issues with quitting whenever I feel as though it’s enough. The idea is to leave feeling like I’ve had a great workout, not leaving like I can’t function for the rest of the day.
BODYARMOR, with its proprietary electrolyte formula, is a great option to regain those lost fluids. It also has a wide-mouth bottle for easy consumption. This helps me to re-energize and keep a sense of accomplishment for the rest of the day.
