It is the middle of summer, and it feels like it! Even though it is partly cloudy, the temperature is 93 degrees and the humidity is high. I went for my run this morning thinking it would be cooler than running this afternoon, which is true, it was cooler, but it was still H-O-T. So, I thought I would share some hot weather tips for working out!
Drink lots of water: before, during, and after exercise.
Workout in the shade rather than under direct sunlight
Don’t hydrate with a caffeinated beverage…it will only DEhydrate you
If you feel faint or dizzy, stop exercising, hydrate, and move indoors. Only resume activity once you feel back to yourself again.
Wear clothes that wick the sweat away from your body
