The importance of hydrating well before running in summer

The running It is ideal to practice at any time of the year; As we told you in some moments, there is no doubt that the practice of physical exercise in general is fundamental especially when it comes to maintaining good health, taking care of our weight and keeping us physically active.

The summer It can also become a really useful and interesting option, since not due to the fact that summer holidays come we must stop practicing sport (a mistake - in fact - very common when we go on vacation, and we forget that in we can actually have an hour every evening to do our favorite physical exercise).

In the case of exercise in summer, we should not forget the importance of hydration, even more in those hot days, in addition to following other basic tips. The most important? Avoid the practice of sports in the hottest hours (between 12 a.m. to 4 p.m.), preferably doing it in the evening, and hydrate very well.

In relation to hydration before going for a run, although it is true that it is essential whenever we do it, in the summer it is even more important.

From Vitónica, for example, we recommend drinking at least half a liter of fresh water during the two hours before we go to practice sports, making small shots every 30 minutes.

Of course, it would not be advisable to drink water in the 10 minutes prior to going for a run, since problems such as heaviness in the stomach may arise.
