I don't drink during my workouts usually, but it was only a 3 mile run. I was only going to be out a little over 30 mins- do I really need water during that time? I easily drink 2L a day- and I drink before and after my runs. If I'm at home doing a dvd, I drink during the workout- but between the leash and the fauxpod, I don't have a hand free for water
I already decided to drop lower weights- possibly indefinitely- due to my increased miles. My legs just can't really take it right now. I figure I can add them back in as I build up my running strength. No experience with powders/foot rot- but I know my friend had some issues when she was training for the SanFran marathon. I'll ask her what she did. I know she faithfully uses Gold Bond.
Well ok then. I guess maybe I should bring some water with me. Who knew?
Well, you are drinking quite a bit already, but they say to drink an ounce every 10 minutes during running. Worth a shot, I guess.
Thanks for asking your friend. I'm now going back to being a faithful GB user

Yep, Bean used me to practice starting IV's for one of her classes and she said it's basically cheating to use my forearms
