Dehydration Blues

Hydration on the run.
After my half marathon training run, I crashed.

Nausea and lethargy consumed me. I think it is because I got dehydrated.

Even now, more the 24 hours after I finished, I feel like crap.  Even my skin feels dry.

I consumed about 750 ml on my 2-and-a-half hour run. Various sites I've checked out say that should have been more like 2,000 ml.

I usually wear a waist pack with little bottles that come on and off.  I can carry about 500 ml of water with the these. Not nearly enough.

Time to switch to a 2 liter Camelbak methinks.

It will mean carrying an additional 2kg on my back, but considering I've lost 6.3 kg since January, it's no biggie.
