    Remember to take one or two days off from exercise a week. Your body and mind need time to recover and your workouts will be better for having some down time. emoticon

    With over 100 degree weather here for the past 30 days, I always find exercises to do indoors or very early in am. emoticon

    I agree. We have to be smart about this. Some of us do not have an indoor facility to exercise in and don't have air conditioning. I speak for myself as one of those people. My daughter is doing a Bootcamp and when I found out her trainer had them running in the high 90's degree weather with high, high humidity, I was angry. MN lost a professional football player during training camp, several years ago. That is not smart. She was red faced/flushed for hours. She said an older woman told the PT flat out, she would NOT run outside and run steps with those conditions. In my opinion, this PT made a bad decision and should have thought this through. It's not worth a life, my 4 and 1 year old grandchildren, not to mention me and many others would have been lost without her!
