HY­DRA­TION IS KEY

Trail Running (UK) - - Training Tweaks -

At risk of sound­ing over­bear­ing, you re­ally need to make sure you’re drink­ing enough wa­ter. H2O is not only es­sen­tial for fu­elling your grey mat­ter, it helps to flush out tox­ins pro­duced when you ex­er­cise – plus, the body of­ten mis­takes de­hy­dra­tion for hunger, which makes you snack. Keep on top of your hy­dra­tion with one of these two tools: The Pryme Ves­syl is a fu­tur­is­tic ‘smart’ wa­ter bot­tle – it sounds ridicu­lous, but bear with us. The bot­tle tracks and dis­plays your spe­cific hy­dra­tion needs, so you know ex­actly how much wa­ter to drink and when to drink it. Smart, right? Al­ter­na­tively, you can try Trail Run­ning con­trib­u­tor Luke Meates’ idea: sling seven elas­tic bands around your wa­ter bot­tle and re­move one each time you fin­ish it. By the end of the day, aim to have re­moved all the bands. Sim­ple, right?
