As the frizzy mess of hair on my head will tell you, it’s H-O-T and humid out! I’ll say from personal experience: do NOT take this heat and humidity lightly – especially when you’re being active. I went for a 7 mile run with a friend a couple of weeks ago, right smack in the middle of the day (it was around 1:30pm) when the temperature was about 90 degrees. Neither of us had water with us, and it was the first time that I was trying to run that long of a distance outdoors (yes, that’s long for me! But, that’s a topic for another post!) Anyway, we did just about everything you should not do when working out in high heat and humidity. Needless to say, I got pretty sick afterwards and swore that I would never be that dumb again! So, I would like to share a few tips with you about staying active in this heat so that no one else has to experience what I foolishly put myself through:
Don’t make the mistakes I made! Take these simple precautions and enjoy working out in this beautiful summer weather. Do you have tips on how to stay safe when working out this summer? We’d love to hear them.
