Summer is coming in HOT which means a change in how we approach our training and racing. Physical activity in hotter temperatures loads the strain on your body and cardiovascular system. As your body temperature rises, your body reacts with increased sweat production, your heart rate increases and your blood vessels dilate.
Heat cramps occur when you lose too much fluid and electrolytes through sweating. This can occur during a run, or hours afterwards.
