Osmo athlete and Coeur Sports ambassador, Page Spicer Williams, is no stranger to hard training and racing. And when it comes to hydration and nutrition, she’s had her share of mishaps. Here, she shares her tips on the importance of hydration…..with a little humor;-)
Trust me, I get it.
Hydration is hard work.
And you don’t need to remind me of all of the benefits: increased energy, better recovery, improved endurance, and all-around better performance. When you have a product like OSMO it becomes immediately evident how hydration is supposed to be done.
But for some reason, so many still struggle with it. I’m guilty of my first-world laziness and find eye-rolling statements like the following coming out of my mouth:
“I just forget to do it.”
“I didn’t prep any bottles.”
“I don’t want to have to hold my water.”
“I’m just lazy.”
As I type this, I also want to slap myself. COME ON, PAGE. Get your helmeted-head out of the California clouds and get with it. You’ve finally found a product that works and you’re lucky enough to get to commit a good portion of time each week to training…don’t let it go to waste by not hydrating intelligently!
So, to combat the embarrassment, I’ve made a dummy-proof tutorial that proves setting yourself up for success is ridiculously easy. Unless you can’t open bottles or lids — then you get a free pass.
You’re telling me that in the same time it takes to watch a cat on a Roomba GIF, I could have also set myself up for stellar athletic performance?! Well, if I would have known that earlier, I would have spent those hard-earned five seconds differently.
Or maybe I’ll just spend it futzing with my Garmin settings.
No, no, hydration.
