Larry’s Deep Thoughts:

This is the second week of training. You are probably a little sore as the training ramps up. Ensure you drink 10-12 glasses of water (8-12 ounces) daily, perhaps some NUUN hydration. Watch carbonated beverages and caffeine ( 2 cups okay, tea, coffee, a soda). 

Take the time to stretch. If you have access to a chiropractor, check it out. I am using one now, and it has changed my life. Check the life of your shoes. There are lots of good ones out there. We suggest checking out brands like Brooks Running, which have a variety of shoes for your needs. Two good pairs of training shoes are a great investment; purchase them at a local running store to try different brands. 

Pack a bag or backpack with dry clothes, dry shoes, some snacks, and water and keep it with you.
