Fluid Intake on Long Runs

Fluid Intake on long runs: Generally, Mr Galloway recommends drinking water only during a long one because it reduces the chance of nausea, and is absorbed quicker. Marathon Medicial Directors recommend no more than 27 oz (850ml) of fluid an hour during marathons--and long runs. The day before long ones, and the day after, Mr Galloway recommends a sports drink --about 6-8 oz (@200ml), every 2-3 hours, with other fluids as needed.
