from one runner to another pass it on

Hot Day Hangover

When one hot day follows another followed by another and so on, running can put one into a state of dangerous dehydration. I am not quite sure if I hit hangover type symptoms, but I did feel weak, delirious and the sunscreen in my eyes had me staggering all over the road like a bad flashback sequence.

Cutting a workout or run short can be the right decision when  the temps just don’t allow for a healthy situation. As much as I like to push through pain and discomfort to maximize my conditioning, playing it safe when necessary is just the right thing to do for my health and my family’s security.

Question for the day: What training mistakes have you made that would help others make better training discisions?
