I doubt you'll accidentally get too much

Yeah man probably is a lil low but you'd probably be fine if you did it consistently, avoided diuretics whenever possible and adjusted on days of activity.

What was the reason for the hyper hydration period? 3 gallons is quite a bit for 1 day haha. Oh and did you do anything special for that besides drink tons of water?
