Come friendly Dachs and fall on Slough...
Good racing, and even more enjoyable (for me!) reports chaps! Sounds like a good evening out for the forum whatever the results and all of your times are bloody quick given the heat! All those rules and regs and etiquette don't make track an attractive option for me somehow....
I've got some track spikes SG. I've never worn them, but as they were only £10 I thought, why not? Cheap as chips!
Interesting discussion about dehydration. Yes, I agree it's crucial to get it right, especially in hot weather, but you can go too far. At least 14 athletes have died from hyponatremia:
When I went to the track yesterday I had to go through the gym - air conditioned. I went to have a drink from the fountain and waited while a woman filled her 750ml water bottle to the brim. When I went back through, 25 mins later, she was back there refilling, before going back to her machine. 1.5L of water for a session in an air conditioned gym seems a little excessive!
