With this calculator, you can precisely predict and estimate how much you need to rehydrate in any given temperature and humidity.
Sweat loss calculator instructions:
Step 1: Enter your pre-run weight in box 1 (preferably without shoes and clothes on)
Step 2: Weigh yourself after your run and enter in box 2 (again, without clothes or shoes)
Step 3: Enter how much, if any, fluid you loss by going to the bathroom on your run (estimate to the nearest ounce) in box 3

Finally, record the temperature and humidity levels during your run (average the starting and finishing temperatures if they changed significantly while you were running) and enter them into the first and second column of the spreadsheet and fill in the rest of the data based on the numbers the calculator provided.
|Running Conditions||Sweat Loss|
|Temperature||Humidity||oz per min||lbs per hour||oz per km||oz per mile|
Now, you have a very accurate assessment of exactly how much fluid you lose in a given heat and humidity. By filling out the chart multiple times, you can precisely predict how much fluids you’ll need to consume during workouts and races and adequately rehydrate yourself for optimum performance.
