While you may not be sweating as intensely when the cold weather rolls in, remaining hydrated is just as important. Drinking an adequate amount of fluid before, during and after a workout is crucial to achieving optimal performance.
For the most part I use my custom Infinit nutrition blend. Through the years I’ve worked with Infinit to create a couple of custom blends that I use for all my training and racing. For people that don’t know about Infinit Nutrition it’s basically customizable drink mix, you can take all the ingredients that the body needs to preform athletically, carbohydrates, protein, sugar, electrolytes and control how much of everything you want in that personal mix
Osmolality is a measure of the number of dissolved particles in a solution. You can think of it as a fancy word for the concentration, or density, of a fluid. Scientifically speaking, the osmolality of a solution refers to the concentration of osmotically active particles in that solution. Osmolality is a function of the number of particles and is not related to particle weight, size, shape, or charge. Almost every fluid has an osmolality above zero — Except for distilled water, which has been processed to remove all other substances or “solutes” from the water molecules.

Harvey Lewis has been a runner all his life and ran his first marathon at age 15. At the tender age of 20, Harvey was having to deal with becoming a new parent all while trying to cope with the loss of his mother one year earlier. After 17 years of tireless work, Harvey finally finished with a time that qualified him for the Boston Marathon. 6 years later he found himself as a member of the USA Track and Field Team for international 24-hour competitions. In 2012, he was a member of the USATF team that claimed bronze in 24 Hour competition in Poland and gold the following year in the Netherlands. Harvey also won the 2014 Badwater Ultramarathon, which National Geographic called “the world's toughest race.”
