Hi TATTOOREADERII,

That number seems awfully high for a 45 minute run in the winter. One way to check the app's numbers is to weigh yourself before and after the run. A 21 ounce fluid loss will show up on the scale (after all, that's more than a pound.)

The standard recommendation is to rehydrate during any run over 60 minutes. For shorter runs, go by your thirst. The need depends on pace and weather. Personally, I always carry a water bottle and sip small amounts throughout the run. But I do live in Texas.

I'm currently using a running app to track my long runs to give myself some motivation when I see progress. One of it's feature is a rehydration figure, which I assume is how much fluid I lose through sweat. So for example today I ran 4.5 miles in 46 minutes so the rehydration total was 21.65oz. I imagine that the longer my runs get the more I'll need to drink after. My question is, how soon after a run should I rehydrate? And will I get ill if I drink all the water at once, should I be sipping it?

Whilst I'm on the topic, what about the long runs I'll have coming up-15+? Do you hydrate during those runs? emoticon emoticon emoticon
