Running tip of the week

Tips from my weekly half-marathon clinic. This week is all about hydration.

  • Do not wait until you feel thirsty to start drinking water. If you wait til you feel thirsty, you’re already 2 percent dehydrated and it’ll affect your run.
  • As a general rule you only need a sports drink if you’re exercising intensely for more than an hour. Less than an hour and H2O is sufficient.
  • Drink approximately half a cup of water every 15-20 minutes during your workout.
  • When choosing a sports drink, look for one with 0.3-0.7 grams of sodium per litre, contains 4 to 8 percent carb concentration, and a variety of carb sources.
