#trainingtipthursday Training Tips from the Raw Threads Club
One subject that always needs to be enforced is drinking fluids early and often. It’s a great idea to top off your fluid stores with 16 ounces of sports drink an hour before you head out for any type of exercise, walking, running, run/walking or working out. During training about every 20 minutes drink seven to 10 ounces of sports drink. Sports drinks are important because they contain glucose and sodium (sugar and salt), which increase your water-absorption rate, replace the electrolytes you lose in sweat, and taste good, encouraging you to drink more. Many of us alternate sport drink and water breaks.
