    I try to remember to bring salt out on long runs or rides so I don’t get cramps. I’ll have to try this new product out and see how it works. Congrats on the new PDR!

    Love the tan lines!! I get those too during the summertime. It’s like a temporary fitness tattoo, or at least that’s what I tell myself πŸ˜‰

    Is that the Suncoast trail? If so, I ride the north end pretty regularly (til they closed it for construction few months ago, grrr). It is the hilliest place around here for miles. I always go there instead of another local trail when I need a good butt kicking.

    Also, congrats on your distance record. I’m a regular reader–excited for your Ironman journey. I’ll get there in a few years–got to get the kids in school first.

    I started riding in April and I’m up to 30- 60 seems really long and really far away for me! Do you wear padded shorts? Any recommendations on brands?

    I’ve spent all Summer trying to adjust my tan lines, but all I end up doing is mixing it up with random lines all over my arms, legs and back! The trials of a runner… πŸ™

    That pizza looked amazing!!! I gotta try at-home pizzas!
    Great job on the bike and fantastic job getting out there on the run afterward! So hard to convince yourself to do! Endurance sports are mind games πŸ™‚

    I use Nuun tablets on my rides and after my runs. I have never tried the gatorlytes, might would be interested to see how they do!

    Nice PDR on that bike! Salt makes SUCH a difference for long bricks in the heat. If you don’t like the super-salty taste of the Gatorade product, look into Saltsticks – they’re just pills you swallow so you don’t taste anything.

    Congrats on the PDR! Was that the Suncoast?
    My hubby cramps up real bad just after playing recreational sports. He takes salt tablets and is just fine though (with a lil stretching help from his therapist wife too πŸ˜‰ But perhaps we’ll try those gatorlytes to see if they’re any different! Have a good restful weekend!

    I would love to have some of those trails close to me – looks like a good time!

    Please be careful with sunburns. A couple of friends of mine recently had to have moles on their back biopsied due to excessive burning over the last 10 years worth of summers. That’s only from Canadian sun – I know Florida is way hotter. Just keep safe, lady! πŸ™‚

    Hey, that looks like the Suncoast trail where my parents live. I’ve done quite a bit of running on those hills- near SR 50 right?

    Have you tried Hammer’s e-caps (or s-caps)? I found my stomach can only handle so much Gatorade (4-5 hours and I’m done) but taking the e-caps helps tremendously to replenish my sodium loss. Check them out.

    I want to try those Gatorlytes! I’ve used salt tabs before but these sound more appealing.

    I have matching tan lines! My shorts tan is the worst- my knees are so tan from biking and so I basically have stripes on them. Really attractive when my skirts hit right above it.

    I have the WORST shorts tan going on right now! My family and I went down to the lake for this weekend, and I was so embarrassed to put on my bathing suit and show my awful running tan lines. Ah well…all for a good cause πŸ™‚

    When it is really hot, I often drink poor man’s gatorade on my run – Lemonade combined with Salt. It really helps, as I’m a super salty sweater and I can adjust how concentrated the lemonade and salt is depending on my needs.

    There are some really good rails to trails in Florida!! When I was in the Army – we had Victory Punch….it was salt added to Kool aid………uhhh yea gross – but being at bootcamp in August….salt added too kool aid ended up being yummy – we would drink the mess out of it, after a while, you couldn’t even taste it. Your body just craved and needed that salt. πŸ™‚
