Water Loss and Endurance Running


The Science of Sport guys are back in action, fresh from The Great North Run, held in Newcastle over the weekend. One of the questions that jumped out at me :
"Are we the only ones who think it is a bit uncanny that no matter what the distance and no matter what the conditions, when people drink to thirst they lose the same amount of weight?"

Very interesting idea.
