    Today was my second run test of the week, a 10k. Did the run in the early am to try to minimize the effects of today's heat and humidity. Now its time to rehydrate.

    Walked 3 miles in intense heat w my mom but we felt dizzy and faint. Sitting down for a bit to recover.

    Be careful in the heat...drink more than enough water or sports drink

    Just to add, also enough electrolytes. A few years ago, I learned that the hard way. Was at my computer and all of a sudden my peripheral vision went. Before long, I could hardly see anything. Thought I was having a stroke. Scared the bejesus out of me. Turns out it was my first bad migraine. Went to the eye doc (because at slight risk of glaucoma as well) and he just chuckled and said, "we got our first migraine of the Summer".

    I drink a ton of water, so I didn't feel that was it, but he also asked my much I sweat and if it was salty, etc. He strongly recommended I take an electrolyte pill or capsule after each hard sweat, especially in the Summer months.

    I get this really cheap one (some are ridiculously priced) in tablet form. It's meant for overheating in factories but works great also for working out. Medique Medi-Lyte is the one I use. I swear, if I forget it, my recoveries aren't as fast. Feel much better when I remember to take two after a hard sweat. My cramps also went away after I started taking these. I used to have cramps in the middle of the night a lot. Those are all gone as well now.

    Muggy today. Still much better than a few days ago. I was much more hydrated pre-run, and it showed

    Ty no drank a gallon of Gatorade which obvi made me feel sick. Unfortunately that was all my Gatorade for the next few days. Perhaps I’ll stop at a Mart for electrolytes.

    Not a dang thing since it's a rest day. I had some walking to do to get my errands done (~10k steps) and I biked to the gardening store early in the morning for calendula, echinacea, and marigolds plants to propagate at home for making my herbal concoctions.

    Sun 6/7

    MORNING
    40 Chin ups, 102 Push ups (both in sets to failure with minimal rest between sets)
    20.7 miles on mountain bike trails. Vigorous with many inclines.

    I started very early this morning. The humidity is horrible and the wind didn't help either, but I pushed through and had a great workout. I'm done....just going to chill in the AC the rest of the day!

    This morning was a couple of hours spent on the water kayaking with my boys. More fun than exercise, but at least we got some vitamin D. If I manage to finish my paper soon, I might go for a short bike ride (and then reward myself and the fam for a job well done with steamed crabs for dinner).

    @nighthawk584 - way to go!

    Replacing hot water tank and cleaning up mess from the broken one. Find that workout in the MFP list!!!

    Ugh

    Well, this past weekend I visited my parents and was supposed to be restful and relaxing. BS!!! They kept me busy w short bike rides and walks, I kept 20K steps/day!! Today is truly rest. MAYBE a walk later but with this humidity and allergies getting me, who knows.
