Run Handsfree and Stay Hydrated
Water makes up 60 per cent of your total body weight and performs many crucial functions which runners need to pay attention to because as soon as you start to run, you start to dehydrate. Fail to consume enough fluid and your blood will thicken, reducing your heart's efficiency, increasing your heart rate and raising your body temperature. Current guidelines recommend drinking anything from 300ml to 800ml of fluids per hour when you're exercising, and it's much easier to carry your drinks in a waistbelt than in your hand. Carrying a bottle in the hand unbalances you, disrupting your rhythm and style. Once you've used a bottle belt and enjoyed the freedom of movement it gives you, you won't go back to handheld!
