I'm laid up with calf pain at the moment - thankfully disappearing and I hope to get back to running in a week. In the meantime I've realised that I haven't been very good at hydrating for my runs. I try and drink loads beforehand and afterwards - I get a good pint and a half down when I get home (of water!). Nonetheless I think my calf problem is partly related to dehydration. I stretch and rest and do all the right things, but I still got muscle pain.
Question, how do you carry water when running? I know this seems a silly question. I can't see me running along with a bottle in my hand, and it feels a bit like overkill to go out with a running belt and bottles swinging for only 30 minutes running. Any suggestions? I really don't want this to happen again.
