Cyclist, Runners risk dangers of too much water

Cyclist, Runners risk dangers of too much water

runLong-distance runners could be risking their health by drinking too much water, experts have warned.

Most people are aware of the dangers of dehydration, and the need to keep drinking during exercise.

But drinking too much water, plus a loss of sodium, can cause a potentially fatal condition called hyponatremia, or water intoxication.

It is the keen amateur who is most at risk. Elite runners such as Paula Radcliffe move too fast to drink too much.

People who do an hour or two in a gym or go to an exercise class are not likely to develop hyponatremia – because they are exercising for a relatively short time and are unlikely to drink too much.

But experts say the need to keep drinking water during work-outs has been “over-stressed”.

‘Wrong, wrong, wrong’

Concerns over hyponatremia have led USA Track and Field, the body which governs athletes and running in America, to issue new guidelines for long-distance runners.

Dr David Martin, an exercise psychologist from

y, who studied joggers’ drinking habits, said the change was overdue.

He examined the causes of illness in fun-runners since 1985 and found 70 cases of hyponatremia, many more than from dehydration.

He told a national newspaper: “We are very worried about the increasingly large group of people who are taking up running for the first time and who are told the party line Make sure you drink, You can’t drink too much. Carry water with you or you will get dehydrated. Don’t worry about the heat, just drink more’.

“But that’s just wrong, wrong, wrong.”

Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and drive line inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it costs just $2.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at $20.00 per 100kms.
