Sodium per day?

Anyone have any good links re: optimum sodium intake per day for someone training pretty intensely (2-4 hours per day)?

Some reasonable info here:

I don't think you'll find a magic formula as some people sweat copious amounts and others less so. You can resorb sodium through your sweat glands but if you are sweating buckets it's much harder for the body to keep up.
