This varies greatly depending on your size, sweat rate, climate, and a host of other factors. The general recommendation is to drink plenty throughout the day so that you’re never thirsty. Thirst is the first sign of dehydration. You’ll probably be drinking at least 2-3 liters of water per day. Leading up to races you should drink four to eight extra glasses of water the day before, another two to three glasses at least two hours before, and one or two glasses 10-15 minutes before competition. The majority of your fluid intake should be plain water; sports drinks can provide extra calories and electrolytes, but sodas and other soft drinks should be limited as much as possible. You’ll know you’re drinking enough when your urine is clear, you’re using the bathroom frequently, and you’re not feeling thirsty. Adequate hydration should be practiced all day, every day. Don’t try to fit it all in the hour before you race, as water overload is a very real and dangerous condition.
