Working out before the heat

This morning I worked out before work and before it really heats up, it's supposed to be 100 degrees again.

I started with 15 min. on the spinning bike followed by upper body resistance training, with intervals in between to keep my heart rate up. I finished with 30 min. back on the bike and a whole lot of stretching, I'm pretty sore from yesterday.

Here's' my tip of the day for Project stay cool and healthy. If you are planning on working out know the weather during this time of year. If it's going to be over 80 degrees workout in the morning when it's cooler. If you plan on working out in the afternoon do it an air conditioned building or wait until after 8pm when it starts to cool down.

I worked at at 5am this morning and it was already 77 degrees. I drank plenty of water and paced my workout, so I didn't get over heated. I also had a fan to help keep me cooler.

I'm going to an all day meeting today. Lunch and snacks are to be provided but you never know what that means. So I'm going prepared with some healthy stuff. I'm packing a banana, grapes (extra to share with my friend Tara), half of a pb sandwich, and a Larabar. It's better to go prepared and bring what I don't eat back home.

  1. I completely agree - always best to be prepared for meetings like that with healthy foods so you're not tempted by all the sugar!
