Chicago is a world-class running city, and the summer months provide a wealth of opportunities for area runners to put themselves to the test. And, whether you’re training for a 5K or 10K, a half marathon, or even gearing up for the Chicago Marathon this autumn, you understand how important it is to keep your body in top condition.

When doing speed work or building weekly mileage in preparation for a big race, you’re pushing your body to its limits. This puts you at elevated risk of dehydration, which can bring nasty side effects ranging from fatigue and weakness, to headaches, muscle cramps, nausea and diarrhea.

So, to ensure your body performs at its best, it’s crucial to maintain proper hydration at all times during your training. And IV hydration from Olivera Health + Wellness could be just the solution to keep you in top form as you prepare for your big race.

Consider just a few advantages of IV hydration therapy…

When you run, you sweat – it’s how your body maintains temperature. And when you sweat, you’re not just losing water, but electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and calcium that help supply your cells with energy. IV hydration not only re-hydrates your body but replenishes vital electrolytes as well.

A long run or vigorous training session can put strain on your digestive system, meaning it may not work as efficiently right afterwards. IV hydration bypasses the digestive system, delivering hydration and energy directly to your bloodstream – making it useful not only for training, but also for recovery after your big race.

IV hydration isn’t as time-consuming as you may think. With treatment typically taking between 45 minutes and 1 hour, it’s easy to fit into your race prep routine. And with Olivera, it’s easy to schedule an appointment – simply book online, by phone, or just walk into either our Chicago or Elmhurst locations during business hours.

So, if you’re looking for an edge as you train for a big race this summer, or if you simply want to keep your body in peak condition year-round, consider the benefits of IV hydration therapy from Olivera Health + Wellness. And if you’re looking for more than just hydration, Olivera has you covered, with a range of infusions to boost immunity, replenish vitamins, promote healthy sleep patterns and much more.
