So I've been thinking lately about this running thing. I am so super amazed at myself for getting up to 4+ miles and for doing it 'smart' in my opinion. I'm also surprised that I've not hurt myself and I'm not burnt out yet.
On my last 4 mile run I started to think about hydration and running 5 miles then 6 then 7 and so on. Right now running downtown I don't take a water bottle with me and there isnt a real set up for me to leave a water bottle somewhere run a loop and come back to it (since 1- someone could take it 2 - someone could put something in it).
SO then it hit me, post about this and see what insight others have. So here are my questions running through my head.
On my 4 mile run I don't feel thirsty - I know its not smart to run without water so at while mileage point do you start carrying water with you?
What is the longest run you've done without water?
If you carry a water bottle - any recommendations? Do you carry water or gatorade?
