Myth 5 of 5 – Drink At Least 8 Glasses Of Water A Day
Staying hydrated is important, but the amount of water you should consume each day is up to you. Again, this is another instance where you should listen to your body. There is no science the backs up the claim that you should be drinking 8 glasses a day. In fact, there are many marathon runners who avoid drinking too much water because it lowers their sodium levels and puts them at risk of hyponatremia. There’s no need to stress about the amount of water you should be drinking each day just make sure you drink enough water to feel hydrated.
