Fitness Tip: Weather-related injuries

High, summer temperatures quickly raise our risk of weather-related injuries. Whether you are exercising by mowing the lawn or doing other yard work, or you are the one walking briskly, running marathons or triathlons or training for an upcoming event, overheating can happen easily and quickly in the body this time of the year. Be sure you are drinking plenty of water before, during and after your workout. Other ways to avoid these injuries is to rest every hour, change wet clothing, avoid midday sun, apply sunscreen, wear lightweight and breathable clothing, minimize soda consumption, drink plenty of water and maybe even add drinks containing electrolytes.
