Dr. Tim Noakes – Are We Waterlogged?

March 13, 2013

WARNING: This podcast may change the way you train and race forever!

What is your sweat rate?

What is your hydration plan for training and racing?

How do you know if you need to increase your electrolyte consumption?

OR, have we been dooped by the big corporations into spending millions on hydration supplements?

Tim Noakes, MD is an accomplished endurance runner and veteran of over 70 marathon and ultramarathons.  He is also the Discovery Health Professor of Exercise and Sport Science at the University of Cape Town in South Africa and one of the world most esteemed researchers dealing with endurance athletes.

Many of you may have his classic book, “The Lore of Running” (or should have).  We talk to Dr. Noakes about his latest book, “Waterlogged: The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports”  These two books should be in every ultra runners’ library.

Closing Song: “Cool Clear Water” by Hank Williams
