Ask The Running Doc: How Can I Train & Race In The Heat?

 

Do The Salt!

As long as your physician has not recommended that you limit salt, salt helps you maintain hydration and prevent cramps.Increase your consumption of salted foods like salt bagels, salted pretzels,and salted nuts. On an excersise day, consume one fast-food salt packet at the beginning and another salt packet halfway through the intended course. It would not hurt to increase your salt intake all week unless again if your physician has you limiting salt.
