How many popsicles

Day # 437

How many popsicles does it take to fill a handheld?

You can't see it in my phony-smile photo but I'm hold two freezer pops in my other hand.  It has been HOOOOT to there lately and after enjoying the cooling surf on my runs all of last week the temps and humidity are quite a challenge.

After a run it's no longer a question of IF I have a popsicle, it's a question of how many.  That got me to thinking.  I wonder if I could keep my core temp down on the run if I cold enjoy my frozen treats WHILE I'm running?

Tonight I may have to put the theory to the test.  Until then what flavor do you want?

  4. I like that idea. I also saw a pic on twitter yesterday where someone had put her singlet in the freezer pre-run. In this heat I'm willing to try anything!

  6. I bet they'd be awesome on the run. I've been enjoying them apres-run as well! Hmmm flavor-wise I'm not picky!

  7. I was just reading in Runner's World where they recommend popsicles before the run to help with core temp.

  8. I hope your test works out, this heat is crazy! And we don't even have it as bad as you guys. My favorite popcicles are banana...I hope you have some! :)

  9. I read - sorry, can't remember where but it was this week - that runners who have frozen treats before they head out stay cooler than those who drink water while running. I'll try to find the article and send it to you.
