Triathlon tip: Don’t rely on thirst for your daily fluids intake

Even though most humans rely on thirst to drink water or other fluids, triathletes and endurance athletes should not do that. They should develop  daily hydration habits in order to keep their body proper hydrated. By the time an endurance athlete becomes thirsty, his or her body has already experienced significant fluid losses.  That is very important during training and races. If an athlete start feeling thirsty during training or racing, his/her performance level would already have decreased.
