7 Negative Effects of Dehydration on Your Running Performance ...


All you runners out there, did you know there are many negative effects of dehydration on your running performance both during and after your workout? Do not be sidelined because you did not prepare for your next run by ensuring your full hydration. Hydration is critical, especially as we head into the summer months where outdoor training can be a scorcher. So make sure to drink plenty of fluids so you can avoid the effects of dehydration. Here are the negative effects and signs of dehydration--and remember H20 is the way to go!

1. Dry Mouth

One of the first signs of dehydration is dry mouth. I have felt this extreme dry mouth feeling when I have run fiercely hot marathons and become dehydrated due to excessive water loss. The effects at this point of dehydration can often be coupled with a headache. This is a very uncomfortable feeling. Avoid these effects of dehydration and drink some water or coconut water before your next run.
