As I’ve mentioned before, Danny and I are doing the Columbia Muddy Buddy in July.
This will be my third time doing the Muddy Buddy, and Danny’s second time. I recently found out that Nuun is one of the Muddy Buddy sponsors this year, and they’re sponsoring two teams in each category in this year’s Muddy Buddy. So, I’ve decided to apply for the Nuun Muddy Buddy sponsorship.
Nuun is an electrolyte enhanced drink tab that dissolves in your water bottle to keep you hydrated. It is sugar-free, has 6 calories per tab, and comes in 11 flavors.
I went to a nearby Vitamin Shoppe to pick up my Nuun. You can check out the Nuun store locator here.
My local Vitamin Shoppe had three Nuun flavors – Lemon+Lime, Tri-Berry, and Fruit Punch. I wanted to try the Tri-Berry, but Jaden talked me into getting the fruit punch flavor. I don’t know why I took Nuun flavor advice from a five-year old, but I did. I also bought the Lemon+Lime flavor.
Each tube has 12 tabs inside that you dissolve in 16 ounces of water.
Last night after dinner, Danny and I went to our normal running trail. I’m working on improving my mile time since the Muddy Buddy is one mile of running and one mile of biking for about 6 to 7 miles.
Danny tried the fruit punch Nuun.
I made the lemon+lime Nuun.
You don’t have to tell me that I look sexy with my knees showing. I already know.
The first two miles I did a 4:2 run/ walk ratio. I walked the last mile or so because I was starting to get wheezy. I think I started out too fast in the beginning because I haven’t wheezed in a long time. I completed about 3.5 miles total.
Questions of the day:
- What do you drink when you workout? Water? Gatorade?
- What do you wear when you workout? Do you match or do you just throw on anything?
- Any plans for today?
