Drink small amounts of fluid during exercise. Don't wait until your thirsty!
Chose still or lightly carbonated isotonic drinks rather than fizzy, sugary or ice cold drinks which can cause cramp. You must remember that plain water will not provide additional carbohydrate to boost energy for the working muscles.
