Aerobics – Hydration It’s important to stay hydrated before and during your running exercise. This can prevent you from suffering heat related illnesses.
If you don’t drink enough, you can get tired, uncoordinated and your muscles can start to cramp. You can also pass out, especially in warm weather.
You can also experience heatstroke, exhaustion from the heat. When you are running, you need to know how much you are drinking through the entire process.
Prior to running, you should drink at least 24 ounces of water. This should be done at least an hour before you start. If not water, drink something that does not contain caffeine.
Twenty-four ounces of water should be enough to get you started. Having more than that can stop your exercise regimen and force you to go to the bathroom.
While you are running, drink at least eight ounces of fluids that don’t contain caffeine. This should be done at least every 20 minutes. If you are running for more than an hour and a half, include a sports drink to replenish sodium and minerals.
Have a water bottle or something similar that you can carry your fluids in during your running exercise. This is for those who don’t have access to water on their route while they are running.
After you have finished running, you will need to replenish the fluids that you sweat during your exercise. Check the color of your urine afterwards. If the color is dark yellow, drink more fluids. Your urine should be a light yellow.
These tips will help you to stay hydrated and able to run the course. The last thing you need is to pass out while you are out and about.
