Be Careful When Exercising in Hot Weather
When you’re active outdoors in hot, humid weather, be alert for signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Although many of their symptoms are similar, heat stroke is the more serious condition. Don’t maintain your fitness at the cost of your health!
Heat stroke occurs when the body temperature increases too much, causing stress on the body that may harm tissue. The rise in temperature occurs when the heat produced during exercise exceeds the heat that leaves the body. Watch for dizziness, headache, nausea, confusion, body temperature above or below normal, muscle cramps and/or you stop sweating.
Avoid heat problems by drink water regularly throughout your activity, but don’t drink more than 3 cups of water per hour.
Let’s face it – jogging when the temperature is 90+ at noon with no water, is unhealthy – and I saw a couple doing just that last weekend. So, I thought it would be an appropriate time to also share some valuable tips. You can download their infographic.
