Hydration

31 December 2010

It’s hot. Darn hot. Looking at the comments from my street team at RunKeeper the heat plays an import role in how they feel about their runs.

I know that even after a 10Km run, or so, in this weather I’m quite thirsty. And then there are my long (20-35Km) runs. Even before summer arrived, I would drink a litre or two at the end of my run. But no more (I hope). I’ve invested in a Camelbak Octane XCT.

Camelbak XCT With two litres of water, that should make my long runs more comfortable. And yes, I did get the bright yellow one … it was all I could find in the Boxing Day sales.

My first real trial of the pack will be on Sunday when I’m planning to do a 24Km run. That’s also when I hope to get a blow-by-blow of Andrew’s recent outing at the Taipei Marathon.
