With the temps hitting the 3-digits over and over again, I cannot stress more the importance of hydration. Especially so for those of you who walk and/or exercise every day. In the desert climate of our Arizona, you might not realize right away that you have been sweating, because all the sweat evaporates so quickly: our clothes might remain dry, as the result. But it does not mean we do not sweat. We do and even a slight deficiency in terms of the hydration level can bring on some impairment of both physical and mental performance. So, if you think your thoughts get blurry and it just MUST be the age, double-check: maybe it is enough to drink some water!!! If you are exercising up to 1 hour, plain water is enough. If more, you might want to consider some electrolyte tablets diluted in your water bottle (not to mention energy gels to top things up). Apart from pure water and sports drinks, please remember that iced and regular tea or foods such as a watermelon or a cantaloupe all can benefit us in terms of the hydration. Stay Fit-Fit, remember to drink and, if things get fuzzy, drink even more! Better be safe and on the healthy side than sorry!
