I've never tried fresh coconut water - don't think I'd be brave or patient enough to tackle a fresh coconut.
I find it in the juice section of the grocery store. I've only seen it in juice containers. The two brands I've tried is Naked and Coconut - One. I can't taste the difference and don't know if their is a significant difference in quality. I'm not brand loyal on the coconut water - I usually go with what i can find at the store.

do you use fresh or do you buy it in a bottle? Also, are there differences in the quality between one brand and another?
Maybe I can use a salt packet as a supplement?

I use coconut water on my runs and love it. I have read that it isn't enough for runs over 2 hours because it doesn't have enough sodium but I haven't had any problems.

I heard from someone that fresh coconut water is a good replacement for gatorade and other electrolyte drinks. She's into raw foods. Has anyone tried or any advice.

one more thing to consider if you drink too much green tea or coffee before run its a diuretic

The more you train the better your body becomes at managing your sweat rate. That being said, racing and training are two different things, therefore, when one is racing your respiration rate is a tad faster than during training, meaning you are expiring more fluid.

HAPPY SPARK RUNNING!

thanks for asking John and yes that was one of the questions, if you dont need to take in alot of water and do not need to go potty, did you reach some sort of water in/water out balance.

I basically ask that because in the summer it was really often, but during my half, i didnt have to go at all. does the sweating and reduced water intake have anything to do with that and is it safe or normal?

Cooler weather means less sweating so less loss of liquids. So less feeling of thirst. you still need to consume liquids though to maintain your best performance just less. I personally am finding it hard to slow down my intake of water ( Thanks Sparkpeople, Got to have my 8 cups emoticon ). So I am actually stopping for breaks during runs which I never do in the heat. Guess I could do a cold weather hour run baseline to see what colder weather fluid loss is and adjust intake accordingly.

your body needs more hydration in summer/hotter weather especially on those long runs. Were you also asking if we sweat so much dont need as much potty breaks because water comes out through sweat instead ?

Yeah it's true! I don't get nearly as dehydrated in cool weather. The outside temperature makes a huge difference. I can run faster and stronger too! Happy Running!

I guess to non-runners, this is an almost silly question but to us, it is a genuine concern. back when it was alot warmer here where I live, I would have to drink alot and take routine potty breaks because of the fluid consumption.

I have noticed that since it is cooler, especially during my half and the runs leading up to it, i have not had the potty break issue at all.

my question is that is it possible to reach a balance between fluid in and fluid out through sweat or respiration that it greatly reduces the need to urinate during a longer run? I did check myself after the race (color test) and I was not excessively dehydrated at all. not sure what to make of it and is it safe?
