other ways to make sure you stay hydrated through the colder months -
- keep your fluids up all day, and especially before/during/after working out - I carry a big water bottle around with me all day and aim to refill it at least a couple of times through the day
- if you're thirsty then you're already dehydrated!
- check your wee - seriously, it's one of the best ways to tell if your dehydrated! As a rule, a large amount of light coloured, diluted urine and you're probably hydrated; dark coloured, concentrated urine and you're probably dehydrated. But, lots of wee doesn't mean you're optimally hydrated - clear urine is water that's not being absorbed. Nuun's balance of electrolytes helps make sure that more of what you drink gets absorbed!
Nuun were kind enough to send me some of their lovely hydration tabs, but as always all opinions are my own (I genuinely think it is awesome!).
