I ran today...and we've really hit summer weather down here. As in 96 degrees Fahrenheit, or 35 degrees Celsius, and one of my meds means I don't sweat normally...I'm actually thinking about splitting my workout and working out some at 1 am when I get home. So I thought it just a good idea to remind everyone...hey, it does seem to be getting hotter everywhere. You may not be used to it. You need hydration. Don't leave home without it. Also, you ought to watch your potassium intake-honeydew melon and bananas are both excellent places to get potassium...although I actually use morton's no-salt...which is potassium chloride. Just make sure you don't get much more of it than the RDA if you use the no-salt. Too much can also throw your heart rhythm out of whack. Calcium supplemetation also seems to help prevent muscle cramps when working out in the heat. Of course, run all this by your doc if you have anything funky going on. ....
