We RUN USA !!!

Running, Racing, Fitness and Health in the USA

Time has Changed, Weather is Cooler, It might be Lighter/darker at Your R egular Run Time November 9, 2014

Now that in parts of the USA we have “Fallen” back  in time as Daylight saving time has impacted us again.

Has this changed your workouts?

1) have you changed time of day?

2) Location of runs?  (hopefully not the dreaded TM..

3) what are you wearing

4) are you safe?Reflective, flashing lights, tell friends/family where and when

5) do you run more or less as it gets cooler/colder?

I  love lemonade BUT the traditional options are loaded with sugar or sweeteners- I started playing with sugarless (NON-sweetened) versions and have found my faves to be

1. Lemon-basil – ADE

2. Lemon- Peach Bubbler (soak fruit in seltzer water)

3. Lemon-Ginger-Mint (Chocolate Mint is my fave)

So many other concoction created and ENJOYED but these are my GO-TO’s all summer long

 

The basic recipe for all of the above is:

–  2 Organic lemons cleaned and sliced into rings

–  <2 qts filtered water ( unless seltzer)

OPTIONS-

– 1/2 cup leaves    OR

-1/2 cup chopped fruit

– for Ginger 3-5 1/4″ thick discs(peeled)

 

Combine chosen ingredients and let sit on counter overnight( or all day) 

This is only 64 ounces and may of us drink that much with minimal effort so making this daily is suggested.

******   Another fun option is to shredded and freeze basil leaves in ice cube trays

Some recipes found with a Quick search-
