I live (and run) in South China and so have to cope with horrendous humidity as well as being unfit and overweight. Does anyone have any tips for dealing with the hunidity - it is so draining I can only manage about 10 minutes running before having. I drink loads of water (over 4 litres a day) would sport drinks be more bwenificial than just plain water?
Also, I want to lose weight and saw on a posting someone mentioned a 40/40/20 carbs, protein fat balance - can anyone elaborate please? What portion sizes etc.
Finally, I started running in May with a colleague but she's now left to live in Hong Kong so I'm here all on my own and motivation is flagging. Anyone fancy being a virtual running partner? Just need a bit of a kick up the a**** to do a bit more
