As an athlete, you may have often been told that thirst signal was delayed from my hydration status. You have to drink before, during, and after training… always be well hydrated and try to replace every weight loss by drinking sufficiently… before getting thirsty!
The Running Clinic have written an informative blog containing 10 things you should know about Hydration for the Endurance Athlete. It is worth a read and may make you question a few of the things you have been told about maintain hydration.
The bottom line with Hydration is the colour of your urine is a good indicator of your level of hydration. We at Lifestyle and Sports Physiotherapy have produced a Hydration Chart to help you check the colour of your urine and hydration levels. We have attached the Hydration Chart at the bottom of this Blog.
