*Special thanks to Lorie Kah of Physical Journeys fitness for leading the warm-up
- Drink at least two cups of water before your run and drink at the water stations.
- Adjust your intensity to the temperature. In extreme conditions, slow down your pace.
- Wear a vented cap, sun visor, sunglasses and protective sunscreen. If you are sun sensitive or concerned about sun exposure, wear some of the new long sleeve Coolmax or Drylyte shirts. They are both safe and cool.
- Use Vaseline under your arms and inner thighs and (gentlemen) around the nipples and (ladies) under the bra line. This will reduce chafing, a common problem in the summer months.
- Avoid the use of alcoholic beverages. They will only make you feel warmer as their calories are burned quickly, raising your metabolic rate and body temperature. The main reason to avoid alcohol is the diuretic effect and risk of dehydration.
- Increase your intake of Vitamin C. It is a natural and effective defense against heat stroke, cramps, prickly heat rash and exhaustion.
- Make sure you have a variety of fruits in your diet. Watermelon, oranges, bananas, strawberries are a good way to take in vitamin C and potassium - two nutrients that are lost when we sweat.
- Take a fresh change of clothes with you so you don't catch a chill after the run.
- Occasionally savour a low fat frozen treat to reward yourself for keeping the daily workout fun!
- Skim milk is also a great cool drink. It contains a very low fat content with only 10-12% fat calories.
