7. Don’t Rehydrate

You might not feel incredibly thirsty at the end of your run, but if you pushed yourself, you broke a sweat, and you need to rehydrate. Lately, I’ve heard a lot of buzz about chocolate milk as a prime recovery drink, but I stick to my old standard: water. On long-distance runs, of course, it’s important to rehydrate with a real sports drink, but after my morning run, I just make sure to drink plenty of water.
