Sweating And Hydration

At this time of year, we're seeing the weather cool off a bit, but this information about why hydration is important to your "cooling system" is worth noting.

This post on the Frayed Laces blog outlines how fluid intake is critical for athletes so they can sweat successfully. Our ability to sweat is important as it is our internal "cooling system".

Don't take hydration for granted. Make sure you're properly hydrating yourself and the athletes you coach during intense activity.

Keep in mind that sodium intake is also a consideration here as we lose it when we sweat.
