|After a very sweaty run.|
I know that I'm a sweaty beast, so I try to stay hydrated and just drink as much as I can without sloshing when I run and bike. I've wondered if maybe I shouldn't be eating some salt tablets on runs and bikes over an hour or so. I'm not a Gatorade drinker, usually. Too many calories for shorter rides/runs.
For giggles, I measured my sweat rate tonight. It's fairly un-scientific. Weight before, run for an hour, weight after, take the difference and convert to ounces. Oh, and add any liquid you drank on the run.
Tonight it was 85F and 40% humidity. Here's my numbers:
Difference in weight was: 2.8lbs (!!)
Converted to ounces: 44.8
Add 12oz that I drank on the run: 56.8
So my sweat rate is 56.8 ounces per hour. Dang. Feels good to be good at something. Aw, yeah. Feels real good.
Susan is pretty good at making mud pies. I supplied the water. We had already played at the park for a couple of hours this morning...in the sand box. So what do I care if she gets a little dirty-er. :)
Besides, she's so darn cute when she's happy. Don't worry, I gave her a bath. I'm sure we'll do it all over again tomorrow anyhow. At least I hope!
