Drinking fluids: Certainly drinking fluids all day is very important, although I do not think it is specifically bad for the heart. On the contrary, you did do a lot of walking that day, which actually is quite good for your heart from a cardiac point of view. I'm sure your kidneys did not enjoy The lack of fluids though… Bring water next time.
