July in Arizona. LOL, well, I guess that's nothing to get too excited about ... after all, we don't want to raise our temperature anymore than it is. I just returned from a trip back east where it was very humid, so, yes, there is always a trade-off of some kind or another.
Whew! it is hot out there, I just returned from a walk and the temperature is 89 degrees but it felt like more in the sunny spots. Regardless, we have to keep moving so here are some tips to remember:
1) Make a plan for what type of exercise to do during this extreme heat, e.g. swimming or videos to be done indoors.
2) If you're going to be exercising outdoors, try to do so before the sun has risen all the way or wait till it is going down. Cover your head, and wear loose clothing.
3) Get plenty of water in your system, those fluids must be replaced. Consider adding trace minerals in your water to replace the salts and other minerals your body loses when sweating, or use electrolyte-type drinks.
4) Get your fill of summer fruits, they not only help cool your body but are cleansing to your system as well.
