10 Oct Get Marathon Ready With IV Hydration
For so many people, the fall means one thing—race season. It is the perfect time to get out there and participate in local races, whether you prefer a 5K, a half-marathon or if you have been training for the full 26.1 miles. Running is a great sport and one that many people can enjoy for a lifetime, but it also takes a significant toll on the body, especially when running in competitive events. This is why it is so important that runners, at any level, stay as hydrated as possible.
Dehydration is very common for competitive runners, and unfortunately, while quenching your thirst mid-race may be refreshing, if you are already dehydrated, it isn’t going to do much for your system. Severe dehydration can lead to muscle aches, headaches, fatigue, and it can cause gastrointestinal distress on the body. This is why it is so important to make sure you are hydrating and properly fueling the body before a big race. The good news is, we have one of the most efficient and effective methods of hydrating the pre-race body: IV Hydration.
IV Hydration infiltrates the body with the fluids and electrolytes it needs to be in top performance shape and to prevent that mid-race (and post-race) collapse that can come with serious dehydration. The great thing about IV hydration is that these fluids bypass the digestive system and are instead quickly absorbed right into the body and straight into the cells. This means they can restore the body and do their job faster than they would be able to if you had ingested them orally.
Our IV Hydration therapy here at LT Men’s Clinic offers a number of different intravenous therapy options, depending on your needs. For our runners, we have plenty of hydrating treatments that not only hydrate the body but come with electrolytes, vitamins, and nutrients that your body needs for energy and for recovery as well. It is quick, easy, painless and much more effective than trying to chug a bunch of water and energy drinks before your event.
Race season is here, and at LT Men’s Clinic we can help you get marathon ready for all of your big running events. If you are interested in IV Hydration therapies, give us a call at 817-369-3605 to schedule an appointment today. A hydrated body is a healthy body and one that is ready to take on any race, whether it is a 10K, half marathon or even a full marathon— IV Hydration is here to help you prepare.
