The PARC Monster Dash is this Saturday, October 25, in Pearland, TX (near Sugar Land). For any running enthusiasts and athletes, this is another great opportunity to work those running legs. We all know the importance of staying hydrated, but do you also know it can help prevent sports injuries?

Running in heat

Drinking water is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Not only is it vital to live, but it keeps you healthy when you are doing physical activity. Water can keep your body at a safe temperature, help transport nutrients where they’re needed, and lubricate joints so that they work smoothly. When your body is in need of water, you can feel sick, dizzy, and fatigued. That may disorient you and lead to an injury. There is no “set limit” for how much water you need to drink, because everybody is different. You should be drinking water before, during, and after a work out to replenish any lost fluids.

One of the biggest dangers of not drinking enough water is dehydration. This can be a very serious condition if not dealt with immediately. The symptoms can range from mild to extremely severe. Some things to look out for include dizziness, nausea or vomiting, dry mouth (usually the first sign), muscle cramps, lack of sweating (your body’s defense mechanism against losing more fluid), and heart palpitations. If you experience any of these get some water in your system as soon as possible. Don’t drink too quickly or too much, but instead sip slowly. If you know you will be outdoors and away from accessible water, be sure to bring enough with you.

For more information about staying hydrated call the Sugar Land foot doctors Dr. Marco Vargas at (888) 784-5335 to schedule an appointment. Here at Foot and Ankle Associates in Sugar Land, TX we will make sure you get all the answers to the questions you may have.
