hydration during training

Recommended Posts

Neither. I ran at East Coast Park and purchase 100plus every 7.5 km - McDonald's to Sailing Club and back and stop at bicycle kiosk near the jetty. My body can't take the weight of the camelbak. My 2 cents.

Neither for me as well. Scared to death of abrasion & things bouncing up & down on my waist/back!

I run with a bottle in my hand. still undecided wat to do for runs above 20K. :unsure:

won't get stitch if drink too much water while running?

500ml per 5 miles is ok with me. If the weather is hotter, I drink more. No water - no run. :-)

That is a myth. For long runs you really want to make sure you are getting the right amount of hydration and not stinging on fluids.

any preference over using the camelbak or fuel belt?

I use a 1.5L camelbak. It takes a little getting used to but I couldn't do my long runs without it now.

Try out the Nike fuel belt today, dun like it, too much bouncing, need to keep adusting the bottles to minimize movement.

Notice minor abrasion around waist area.

If you do that, you are putting your body at risk and can malfunction in the run. Why want to put yourself in such a situation to begin with? If it’s a short distance (very subjective...some 5km, some 10km, some 15-18km etc) I can understand. But it is advisable that you best sip at every 2-3km if you are doing long distance training.

From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehydration)

"Symptoms and prognosis

Symptoms may include headaches similar to what is experienced during a hangover, muscle cramps, a sudden episode of visual snow, decreased blood pressure (hypotension), and dizziness or fainting when standing up due to orthostatic hypotension. Untreated dehydration generally results in delirium, unconsciousness, swelling of the tongue[1] and in extreme cases death.

Dehydration symptoms generally become noticeable after 2% of one's normal water volume has been lost. Initially, one experiences thirst and discomfort, possibly along with loss of appetite and dry skin. This can be followed by constipation. Athletes may suffer a loss of performance of up to 30%[2], and experience flushing, low endurance, rapid heart rates, elevated body temperatures, and rapid onset of fatigue.

Symptoms of mild dehydration include thirst, decreased urine volume, abnormally dark urine, unexplained tiredness, lack of tears when crying, headache, dry mouth, dizziness when standing due to orthostatic hypotension, and in some cases can cause insomnia.

In moderate to severe dehydration, there may be no urine output at all. Other symptoms in these states include lethargy or extreme sleepiness, seizures, sunken fontanel (soft spot) in infants, fainting, and sunken eyes.

The symptoms become increasingly severe with greater water loss. One's heart and respiration rates begin to increase to compensate for decreased plasma volume and blood pressure, while body temperature may rise because of decreased sweating. Around 5% to 6% water loss, one may become groggy or sleepy, experience headaches or nausea, and may feel tingling in one's limbs (paresthesia). With 10% to 15% fluid loss, muscles may become spastic, skin may shrivel and wrinkle, vision may dim, urination will be greatly reduced and may become painful, and delirium may begin. Losses greater than 15% are usually fatal. [3]

For adults over age 50, the body’s thirst sensation diminishes and continues diminishing with age. Many senior citizens suffer symptoms of dehydration. Dehydration along with hyperthermia results in seniors dying during extreme hot weather.

Dehydration is the excessive loss of water from the body. Diseases of the gastrointestinal tract can lead to dehydration in various ways. Often, dehydration becomes the major problem in an otherwise self-limited illness. Fluid loss may even be severe enough to become life-threatening."

Personally I am happy to do without supplemental (meaning during the run) hydration for distances up to 8k or so. Beyond that point, post-run, my urine volume is too low and too concentrated for me to be comfortable. It is a signal that I am getting dehydrated and if I were to train beyond that point without topping up on fluids, then I am putting myself at risk for heat injuries, cardiovascular issues and acute kidney failure. Besides, the training would be lousy as I would prob be feeling too fatigued to run properly. The purpose of fuel belt/camelbak is exactly for those situations, whereby water is not accessible.

If you take huge amounts, obviously you will feel uncomfortable. If you are doing a long run, hydration is ESSENTIAL. If you get a bit of stitch, so be it, small price to pay for running safely.

I experienced stitch when I either ate/drank too much before a run, and did not allow enough time for it to digest. If and when this happens, I find the following helps.

1. Slow down and press on the stitch part

2. If it still doesn't go away, or worsen, stop and do some stretching. I find that twisting to either sides works for me.

3. I read somewhere that the stitch is due to air trapped inside, so it may help to bent forward or lift the knee to try and "get the air out". I don't know the exact medical behind, but it has worked for me.

4. However, best is to avoid it altogether.

For me, I need to have at least 1 cup before a run. During long runs of >12km, I know I need to take some water, otherwise I run a risk of having blood in my urine afterwards! I understand it is due to not enough water in my bladder and somehow the bladder walls rubbing causes the blood. Nowadays, I am very careful.

Most of the time when you get stiches,it due to improper warm up done especially for the external abdominal oblique and we tend to overuse and land harder on a certain leg when we are tired or even for some at the start.The stiches would occur when we land too hard on a certain leg till the vibration is begin felt in our side organ(dunnoe call what).To counter it,simply slow down take slow deep breath and change your breathing technique in sequence with landing leg.Before stiches,maybe you are running with breathing out on right leg ,hence when you get stiches,breath out when you land your left leg.my 2 cents

hmm, so must warm up abs also ar?

ya, i read abt the part where u switch the breathing out on which landing foot. for eg, if got stitch on left side, breathe out on right side instead

Haha... for me I just endure and breathe in deeply. For me even 10km runs need hydration cause I dehydrated heavily. Cause it is essential for me to take in water. =) Just take water for safety. That's how I feel. My $0.02.

erm nt to the state that it feels v dry, thirsty confirm have de, even during race, 500m after water point u also thirsty, but i can still bear wif it and trade off wif the slow speed ?? but i see a big diifference wif water( not sure if the gels also aid alot ) in SD and some training wif little water....

I got dehydrated easily even 4 10km run. I usually hold my water bottle & run wif it. It will get lighter as u run. Treat it as weights during run.

usually, for races <= 10km or <= 1 hour, I can go without water and not lose performance because your hydration plan before race should be able to last that long. Having said that, it also depends on the weather and temperature and adjust accordingly.

For people who drink water and get stitch, i believe you just need more time to adapt to the intake of water. Normally, when i drink water, I will walk and drink it at a moderate speed than just gage it down while i'm running. Unless you're trained with that, if not you are taking in alot of air with your water.

Anyway back to threadstarter's question, I haven't tried camel bag yet but i have tried fuel belt, don't really like it hanging around my waist. That's why I don't really like to do LSD unless i'm in east coast with lotsa water points (toilet tap water) every 1-2 km!

    • Run for Heroes 2020 All it takes is for you to run, walk or dance a distance of 1km to show your support and gratitude!Upon completion of your run, you will receive two wristbands - one for yourself and the other will be sent to a frontliner with a personalised message of thanks from you as a tangible show of gratitude.Come join us from today until 8 August to show our support as one Singapore! (info - https://www.runforheroes.sg/)                  
    • Actually, one of the things I always look forward to in coming over for SCSM would be carboloading at some hawker stall. Once, after asking for a sixth order of rice, the uncle who owned the place just exclaimed  "哇!!!" (Waah!) 🤣 The only problem is that there always seems to be new construction constantly in Singapore. One place I ate at before was already closed with a new building being built over it the next time I came back, so its hard to have a favorite place to eat.
    • Now, what I'm going to say next may be a somewhat unpleasant topic among runners, but the reality is that among fellow athletes.... there are some who cheat. 🤔  Although this has been minimized now in modern races with timing mats/chips and vigilant marshalls on the course, in less sophisticated events, some dishonest runners take shortcuts, surreptitiously exchange bibs with a faster runner somewhere along the course (so their times come out better), and in one ultra, board their support vehicle when they think nobody is looking, then get off 10-20km later down the road! I don't know what goes on in the mind of those dishonest people who later claim their finisher shirts and medals just so they can brag on their social media accounts of something they did not rightfully accomplish. They are only fooling themselves. They may be actually very few in number, but if they are so thick skinned to be able to do that in a real race, how much more in a virtual one based on an honesty system? They may have  rode a bycycle, or used roller skates/ a skateboard for all we know! IMHO, that is why a medal/finisher shirt from an actual race will always command more respect and honor amongst us runners than that from a virtual one.    
    • I agree. Crossing the finish line at SCSM by analogy, would be like earning a diploma from NUS, while a virtual run on the other hand, would be like getting a certificate of some online course from some shady internet school. You may have truly done the coursework and gained the appropriate learning in both cases, but when you present your documents to a potential employer, the former will be solid proof of your accomplishment and hard work compared to the latter.  
    • I like this statement: We all look forward to a positive future and I believe that this is a great first step in that direction. Marathon is a sport whereby elite athletes and fun runners are actually racing in the same race. It's what makes our sport unique and I find the essence of this to be beautiful.
