I work full time, I'm a mother full time, & I run to stay fit. Consuming water is something I need to improve on. I know that dehydration lowers your blood volume making it harder for your heart to deliver oxygen to your muscles. Dehydration can cause you to body to slow down.
During training days I don't hydrate before a run, but do after the run. On the week before a race, I push fluids for the first 3 days & slow down just a little before race day. My biggest drawl back on drinking during a race, is having stop to go to the bathroom. I would love to hear anyone opinion hydrating during a run & how much this has helped your race.
I will begin looking for various ways to begin hydrating during a race. I think this will improve my stamina and conditioning. With that said, I am considering the SoCal Wine Country Women’s Half Marathon Justin 23, 2012, Vail Lake Temecula, California. Any suggestions about hydration during a run?
hehehe I just read this on their website:
Wine tasting is available for as long as the bottles last…how’s that for a little motivation for a PR?
