    couldnt see any reason not other than possible dehydration, but that is just my uneducated and "off-the-top-of-my-head-possibly-out-of-my-behind" answer.

    hmm i agree with the above post, the only other thing i might add that might be against it, is losing body salts ( i think you do when you sweat) than might not be replaced.

    i would imagine dehydration been the biggest reason but if you drink enough water?

    again though this is off the top of my head and only my opinion

    good luck :)

    I've decided I'm going to give it a go for just a few minutes.

    I do drink a lot of water 4-5ltrs a day so hopefully it will be you.

    I'll let you know tomorrow!

    So long as you are properly hydrated then you should be fine, but as always listen to your body and if you feel uncomfortable then play it safe and leave :)

    Really looking forward to it, used to be my Friday afternoon treat for months. (because the pool at the gym is dead on a Friday and not too many people to see me in a cossie!! lol)

    I am planning to drink an extra litre before I go swimming and take a bottle of water with me.

    I think u should add extra salt to your pack before u go in. If u r already drinking loads of water and then u drink more, AND lose salt through sweat, I think u should have some more to be safe

    It really was lovely. I am going to go again on Friday. Just a nice slow swim and then a spa bath and sauna.

    Relaxed just thinking about it! lol
