After Wednesday’s whw evening of inspiration I decided to work out my sweat rate as recommended by Dr Jenny Cuthill.
Jenny recommended the following steps …
1. Weigh yourself naked after going to the toilet
2. Run for 1hr at race itensity and weather
3. Don’t eat or drink during run
4. Weigh yourself naked immediately after run
5. Weight loss = sweat rate
Jenny did say you could do a 2-4 hr run and note how much you drink but I decided as I was planning to run for an hour today then that would do.
I wanted to do a hill session today so that worked out well as I tend to run slower on this route due to the hills!
The weather was a bit overcast today with light rain when I ran so I’ll try and repeat this procedure a few times over the next few months in different weather to see what affect the heat makes.
