Drink up!

Drink up!

Making sure you stay hydrated is of huge importance to your running. Even if you don’t feel thirsty, make sure you have plenty to drink, as the body has a poor thirst mechanism – often you’ll feel thirsty long after you become dehydrated. Even a 5% drop in hydration can cause your performance to suffer dramatically.  Drink water if your run is under 15 miles and sports drinks if longer, and try to have a drink every 15 minutes of your run to maintain optimum hydration.
