Since today is Tuesday, I’m linking up with these wonderful ladies:
Today’s Topic is: Hydration
This will not be an exciting post. I am pretty lax about hydrating.
- Before a race:
- During a race:
Plain Water. Gatorade makes me gag and I have been afraid to try anything new. My stomach is irritable at best.
I never carry water. I depend on the water stops. So far I’ve been lucky.
- After a race:
Chocolate milk. My favorite races have it or sometimes I bring it or stop on the way home.
- Before and After:
Plain water. I use the bottles from races and fill with tap water.
I don’t sweat a lot so unless it is warm, I do not need to drink until I am done running (if then.)
When it is hot, I usually plant water and loop around to drink.
If it is a very long run or I cannot loop, I will carry water in a Nathan Handheld (but I don’t like to carry something in my hand.
Happy Running! What do you drink when you run?
