    After I finish running, I was told to drink warm water because this was better than cold water. I prefer cool water, so I’m glad I found this report. I sometimes find it difficult to drink enough water, but I will now start to check my urine to get an idea of my water intake. Great info…I will print this out.

    Hey Mun!
    I read your blog everyday (I came across it a month ago) and I sometimes just read older post. Today, after studying the unit of one of my subjects (I’m a student of Medicine) called “Nutrition and Sport” I found this post (I was actually looking for something related with caffeine and sport…and interesting subject, by the way) and I’d like to point out a few things:
    1. You should drink water before you are thirsty because that means that you have already lost 1% of all the water that it’s contained in your body and even that can affect your performance because you’ll get tired easily.
    2. You should get some carbohydrates in your body at the same time you drink water, with that you’ll achieve two things:
    -Glucose makes it easier for the water to get into the cells.
    -If there is something in your stomach it will retain water longer because if not liquids go pretty fast through our digestive tract.
    3. The water you drink should be about 12- 15 ºC (53- 59 F) because if it’s colder your stomach will contract so you will absorb it worse or you may even vomit it.
    I don’t know if you will read this but I hope it’s helpful!
