Here’s a bit of research published in the August issue of Mayo Clinic Women’s HealthSource about how much water you should drink.
How Much Water
Since 2.2 liters doesn’t mean that much to people think of it like this
- 6 cans of soda or beer or
- a half a gallon of milk or
- 4 bottles of 20oz soda or
- 2.5 bottles of 32oz Gatorade
Things affecting how much water you need
Various things affect your water needs including such things as physical activity (jugglers & runners need more), the weather, the humidity, and whether you’re sick or not.
They say you should drink enough so you’re not thirsty. If you get dry mouth, a headache or feel a little light-headed then you need to drink more.
You’ll find when training for a juggling marathon you’ll often get a headache after a long training session. Not to worry, it goes away.
