One family friend, who is a muscular middle-aged man and an avid runner, generally runs around ten miles a day during his training. Despite having maintained this regimen for years, he had never taken salt before or during his runs. After I counseled him on the potential benefits of salt prior to his long-distance runs, I asked him if he noticed any benefits. He said he noticed a definite difference on long runs, feeling less dehydration when he finished. He also noticed the benefits of salt dosing when running in warm temperatures (above 65 degrees). He noted that he is generally a “cold-weather runner.” It makes sense that he finds cooler weather to be the optimal running temperature: we are less likely to overheat and lose salt and water at colder temperatures, because we’re sweating less! Salt dosing prior to running may be particularly beneficial for those running in warmer/humid climates and those who are running at a fast pace or for a prolonged period.
