Thirsty

I don't know why, but I have been so thirsty for water the past few days. I can't seem to drink enough of it. My lips are all dry and I feel like I have cat hair coating my mouth. What is wrong with me? I can't still be dehydrated from the drinking binge last Saturday; I usually have a pretty quick turn around in that department. Am I eating too much salt? Drinking too much soda? Taking too many aspirin? Talking too much in class?

All could be the culprit. But I am drinking water -- tons of it, and that means I'm running to the bathroom every fifteen or twenty minutes (which, by the way, I had the strangest smelling pee the other day; I really couldn't identify what I had eaten that made it smell so odd). On my way to school this morning, I even had to stop at a gas station on my way because I had to go so bad I thought I might burst; thankfully, it was a gas station I had stopped at before so I knew the bathroom was in decent shape.

But what is up with this? Hydration is one of the few things I do right. I don't eat all that healthy and I don't always stick to my training schedule, but I do manage to drink my fair share of water, so why is it not taking?

What's the weather like down there? It might just be that. But if you're that thirsty for a couple of days, and hydrating properly doesn't fix it, you might want to ask a doctor, just to be on the safe side.

It's been super dry up here lately and as a result, I'm insanely thirsty...and like you, running to pee every 30 minutes.

I think a lot of it has to do with the weather...
