Wanted to make sure everybody was being attentive to their body during the heat. We are in our third day of above 30 temperatures with humidex numbers in the 40s.
Yesterday for the third day, I got home from my ride with a headache and feeling awful. Yes, I was dehydrated and my brain(what is left of it) was cooking.
I spend an hour with a jacket, helmet, gloves and jeans on outside in weather when it is way more comfortable to be in an AC car or office. And my body didn't like it.
It was so bad, I opened my jacket half way and flipped up the face on my helmet, :bom_dunce2:
Made no difference, the air felt like I was sitting in front of a heater on high.
So hydrate, stop often and hydrate more. Two bottles of gatorade mixed half with water, got me to a point where I didn't want to lay down and die.
Be careful and pay attention to what your body is telling you.
Took the train today
AC and got a nap in on the way to the office.
