HY­DRATE

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - FEATURES -

Cool weather can be de­cep­tive when it comes to the need to hy­drate. When we sweat and ex­pe­ri­ence dis­com­fort in the heat, it is a strong re­minder of the need to re­place fluid losses and help con­trol body heat. But, when those cues are miss­ing, such as in cold weather, it can be easy to be­come de­hy­drated. Use other cues such as a beep­ing watch to help you stay on top of hy­dra­tion and go with flu­ids that are palat­able and ap­peal­ing. Hot drinks such as tea, soups or hot choco­late are good op­tions as post-work­out re­cov­ery treats.
