But before you hit the pavement, you have to hydrate. Working out without replenishing the electrolytes sapped by alcohol will just make you feel worse, so get to chugging.
"A lot of water and possibly an NSAID [non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug] will go a long way," says Sirchio.
If you're feeling extra sluggish, sip on a sports drink or coconut water to give yourself an even bigger boost of sodium, potassium and chloride (plus sugar for added energy).
How to tell when you're properly hydrated? "Make sure you are urinating clear or light yellow before starting," says Ziltzer. "That will assure good hydration."
Breakfast can help, too. Temper that pounding headache by eating something stacked with carbs, potassium and sodium. Try bananas, oatmeal and fruit, or whole-grain bread with peanut butter, which will give you a one-two punch of detoxifying B vitamins and protein.
A cup of coffee may boost your energy, too; just make sure you're drinking equal amounts of water to combat caffeine's dehydrating effects. And while you may be craving a bacon-egg-and-cheese sandwich, save it for after your run—or avoid it all together. That whole greasy foods cures hangovers idea is just a myth.
Skip the Hard Stuff
No, not the kind in the bottle. Pushing yourself through a hard workout when hungover can exacerbate your symptoms, so it's better to go for an easier, slower-paced run, says Sirchio.
"Thirty minutes would be great to get over the average hangover," she says. So if you've got mile repeats or a tough tempo on tap, shift it to another day when you're feeling fresh.race.
