Have you ever been in the middle of a great run, and then a horrible side stitch hits you? It's actually a cramp or spasm that's caused by pressure from your diaphragm bouncing up and down as you run, hitting your liver. It's a common ailment for joggers and runners, and likely to persist for the rest of your workout. With these four steps, you can outsmart that annoying side stitch. Stretch before you run.

I used to reference the RDA measures for water intake and discuss 3.2L for men and 2.9L for women to my clients. I would mention that some hydration comes from your food (like the 9-13 servings of fruits and vegetables you should be eating everyday) and some from the liquids you drink (straight water and other beverages). Empathetically, I might quote a company that manufactures high tech body composition testing equipment who use total body water readings and admit to using a suboptimal average in their calculations because virtually everyone is dehydrated to a degree.
Hydrate—Hydrate—Hydrate!! As we say goodbye to the cold weather (I hope I didn’t jinx anything by saying that) and hello to the hot, sunny days more and more people will be taking their activities and workouts outside. While hydration is always important, it becomes especially important in the warm weather.
