Check out Lynn Wilkes on the rock climbing wall at Amelia Island CrossFit! While on vacation she found time to get a workout in. Great job Lynn!
While working out in the heat can help with staying mentally tough, it does carry a risk of overheating and heatstroke. Yes it is hot in here and you need to take precautions. It is most important to stay hydrated. While water is important, it is also important to keep nutrients and electrolytes flowing through your system. We are not big advocates of Gatorade and other "sports drinks", but they can add some needed sugar and elecrotlytes. A better choice would be a pure, unsweetened fruit juice. As always, eat well. Stay in front of the fans when possible as evaporation of sweat cools the body. If you begin to feel an unusually elevated heart rate, nausea, or become lightheaded, take a break in front of the fan.
Here is the good news for those of you who are staying home because of the excessive heat. We are getting an evaporative cooling fan! It should be here no later than Monday.
