1.) Am I better off drinking water or sports drinks?
2.) How do I carry my drink?
Doh, ok I think I get the Camelbak now - it's like a bladder filled with fluids?
Do you think one 22oz water bottle is enough or will I regret not getting a belt with more fluid storage?
You can also look at the Amphipod belts as they are actually expandable.
Vicente, I was actually really well hydrated before I left as I drink water continuously during the day and I had a huge glass about 50 minutes before I left. I wonder if the dehydration could be due to the really high humidity that we have here (Auckland frequently sees 95-100% humidity in the summer)?
Note to JK: I am not drinking alcohol at present so no solution to be found there
