Another hot summer is upon us. This can of course effect our ability to get outside and exercise. But it does not have to stop us. Many people got up early today and where pacing themselves at the Cooper River. It was great to see so many people walking ,running, biking or doing water sports. What did they all have in common? While movement was of course what we were all doing thee was the addition of hydration.
People were carrying water bottles, waist harness carrying fluids and I even saw more then my share of cars with ice chests containing refreshing juices and electrolyte drinks.
Remember at any temperature while exercising we all must stay hydrated. During the hot months it is even more important to focus on your hydration . Consider drinking fluids before, during and after exercise. If the heat is to much consider early morning or late evening times when the sun is not so hot. If all else fails workout indoors where the climate can be controlled.
Above all, keep moving.
