At least a gallon a day. Lucky for me the water cooler is right next to the bathroom at the office. Take care of 2 things at once. Multitasking at its best

Great topic. I drink upwards of 2 gallons of water a day because I dehydrate at the drop of a hat. Doesn't matter what season or what weather conditions, if I don't drink that much I can literally feel my skin tightening in a day.

That said, I try to hydrate evenly throughout the day and vary what I bring on runs with me in my 6oz Fuel Belt bottles:

< 60 degrees and < 8M: nothing
< 60 degrees and > 8M: 3oz per every 3M

> 60 degrees and < 8M: 3oz per every 3M
> 60 degrees and > 8M: 3oz per every 2M + 3oz Gatorade/3oz water mixture for every 6M

I try to limit what I drink on the road so I get used to being thirsty during races.

other comments:
1) I cannot believe that someone who calls herself rolling rock does not drink beer!

2) I have been known to substitute beer for water. :cheers:

confession: i do drink a beer or two on the weekends. i just didn't want you guys to think i was slammin' down 5 beers a night and then wondering why i might be dehydrated????

as far as Rolling Rock (the beer) goes, well, i'd rather not say.
:cheers:

I usually drink water before and after a run. Try not to drink too much right before a run though. You can get cramps. Sport drinks are good for replenishing salts lost from running.
