Start of week two, and finding my sweat rate

Last weekend for my training I focused on my hydration. I  looked up sweat rate chart to help me figure out what I need to replace.  During a just over two hour ride I lost two pounds, or 1 percent of my body weight.  To replace what I lost sweating I needed to replace it by drinking 61 ounces of liquid an hour.  I have been using just water to hydrate with in my bottles on the bike, letting the electrolytes in my PowerBar gels and gel Blasts do their job.  I might take the test again this next weekend.  The weather was cooler so I think I might have not been sweating as much.  Run/Swim brick tonight.
