OLM’s blog has been on the fritz for nearly a month. A good solace is nice but it’s good to be up and running.
Speaking of running — a couple of weeks ago my feet and back hurt something awful. Stiff and sore, every move screamed. It seemed to get worse each day.
Jimmy asked, “Have you been drinking enough water?”
Hmmm. Two liters a day? No.
Why? I know to do it and I’m usually good about it.
Then it dawned on me — it’s winter, I’m cold, I prefer iced water, so I unconsciously avoid my allotment. Come to think of it I’ve been thirsty lately. Fewer trips to the powder room too.
Priorities get arranged.
Winter tap water is rather nice come to find out. I fill up my one liter “strawed” jug first thing in the morning, drink it by noon and then dive into the next (last) one, finishing it around 6pm. I might have to don an extra layer of clothing but tis the season.
After a day and a half of doing things right, WHALA, my back and feet quieted down.
Are you drinking enough water? Does your body hurt, feet ache, perhaps more than ever for some odd reason? You might need hydration. I never thought I could be dehydrated in the winter but my avoidance of ice apparently makes me prone.
Don’t wait till your body cries out. Pick a jug, fill it up, and commence fueling.
