How much water should I drink a day?!

Question: How much water should I drink a day?
4-5 times a week I run 3 miles and lift weights. I'm curious I should be drinking on these days, and on days I don't work out. I'm sure it changes with how much you do on that day. How much should I drink on an off day, and day when im working out. I know no one has an EXACT answer, but suggestions are ok.


drink enough water to make your urine clear enough to read through.

Eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Another approach to water intake is the "8 x 8 rule" — drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day (about 1.9 liters). The rule could also be stated, "Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day," as all fluids count toward the daily total. Although the approach really isn't supported by scientific evidence, many people use this easy-to-remember rule as a guideline for how much water and other fluids to drink.…

as much as you want. empty calories are destroyed during running. plus no fat or anything so drink up. after running and working out you deserve it

8 glasses a day is enough for adults and make ur urine clear(not yellow or orange).
