In the summer it was much easier to drink enough water. I ran. It was hot. I was thirsty. Simple. Running in the freezing cold temperatures just has not left me thirsty. Somewhere between my calf strain in September and now, my day to day water consumption has dramatically dropped. I think I've had a few days where the most I drank was 16 ounces total. If I want to get the most out of my workouts (and I definitely do!) I need to start fixing this issue right now!
While this is definitely a huge improvement over what I was doing, I am hoping to continue to increase my water consumption over the course of the month. I also want to build this into my daily habits now so that when I begin to increase my mileage for marathon training this fall, I will be building on a solid, healthy base.
Has anyone else noticed they are less thirsty in the cold months? What have you been doing to make sure you are drinking enough water?
