Mine is plaid. Is that normal? Or should I see a specialist?

Training in a tropical country like The Philippines means you sweat more. That is why I always bring water and Poweraide.

Actually I prefer Gatorade by since my wife works for Coca Cola, she refuse me to buy it.

Another good article!

Simon, if you don't particularly like drinking water have you thought about making your own flavored water with mint leaves, raspberries, oranges, etc? I do this routinely. I make a big pitcher of it, chill it, stick it into a few filtered water bottles then take it with me. You can purchase these filtered water bottles anywhere. I think ASDA sells them for 8 or 9.

Excellent tip. Thank you.

I have done this with oranges, but will definitely give the mint leaves a go this weekend.

I have recently started to make a conscious effort to improve my hydration and freeze bottles of water for work the next day.

I can drink cold water without too much of an issue.

Sure, no problem!

That's a good idea, I'm assuming because your water bottles are frozen you water stays nice and cold for a long period of time.

Strawberries and mint leaves together are excellent.

Also, if you don't mind ginger ginger, orange and lemon is a very nice infusion, too.

You could also add essential oils to your water if that interests you? Though I've yet to try this so I don't know how good (or bad) it tastes. I believe people use essential oil as a substitute sweetener rather than adding honey. I don't like sweetened water which is why I haven't experimented with it.

Something like this: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/camelbak-pod...-bottle-750ml/ is great for keeping your water cold when on the move. I fill mine in the evening, freeze it overnight and then it defrosts slowly during the day. You might have to experiment a bit with how long it takes to defrost or have a non-insulated bottle for earlier in the day.
