Do you struggle to find time to complete your workouts, especially during the week? Consider working out on your lunch break. Drs I and T run once a week together over lunch. It may seem unpleasant to think about going back to work sweaty and warm, but the docs have a few tricks you can implement to make the rest of your work day manageable.
1. Give yourself a little extra time
Beginning your workout on the dot, or slightly before, your allotted lunch period will give you a little extra breathing room afterward, to make sure you can cool down and be ready for the afternoon.
2. Manage sweat with cleansing cloths
The docs prefer Cottonelle cleansing cloths, as well as Ban Refresh cooling body cloths. The Ban brand leave your skin feeling dry and fresh.
3. Dry shampoo and a straightener work wonders
If you’re a female, and running leaves your hair sweaty and creased from your pony tail, give it a little love with dry shampoo. Dr Illingworth loves Dove Hair Therapy Refresh+Care volume dry shampoo. Dr Tolonen also likes the Dove brand, in addition to Suave Professionals dry shampoo.
4. Never underestimate extra undergarments
We all get sweaty, especially during summer workouts! A fresh, clean pair of unmentionables can make a big difference in the rest of your day.
5. Bring a drink
Even during short workouts, water or an electrolyte beverage can help you feel rejuvenated for the rest of the day. Don’t allow yourself to get dehydrated! If you’re feeling thirsty, you’ve already let it go too far.
