Its been hot for the last few days - I mean really hot and the A/C is not working.
Started my training in this sauna-like weather and I felt like I was doing it in slow motion. Everything seemed so much harder to finish. My punches were pathetic and my kicks were terrible - I had to really work hard at things I thought I was good at.
I must have lost a litre of sweat and by the end of it all I felt a little sick and lightheaded.
If your body continues to lose fluid, you are likely to experience increasingly severe symptoms of heat illness -- general discomfort, loss of coordination and stamina, weakness, poor concentration, irritability, muscle pain and cramping, fatigue, blurry vision, headache, dizziness, nausea, confusion and unconsciousness. These symptoms and even mild effects of heat stress also increase your chance of suffering an accidental injury.
So please take it easy during any hot weather and keep hydrated - I know I'm taking it easy during this heat wave!
I am craving jelly beans! I saw a pack of those gourmet ones - with all the funky flavours, and I can't stop thinking about them.
What crazy cravings have you had?
See you soon.
