How do I stay hydrated during training?

  • Provided that you drink a reasonable amount of fluids throughout the day you don't really need to worry about staying hydrated whilst training, unless it is a hot day or you are doing a really long run or session.

    In this case sports drinks are very helpful as these also provide extra carbohydrates and protein which helps to maintain your energy levels as well. The thing to remember is that once you start to become dehydrated, it is difficult to reverse the process in a short period of time. You should therefore always drink if you start to feel thirsty.
