preventing overheating

So I just came back from a half hour walk.  I'm gradually working back into working out, and am using the non-runner's guide for a marathon.

anyway, i only did a half hour, and am feeling so freakin sick.  overheated, thirsty, etc.  how do I prevent overheating?  Is it all about hydrating before the workout?


Re: preventing overheating

  • Depending on the weather near you, you may have to restrict your walks to early morning or after dinner.  It's still 112 where I am, so before 8am or after 8pm are the only times it's safe to work out outdoors.

    In Basic Training, our TIs kept telling us, "It's not what you drink today that counts.  It's what you drank yesterday."  So yes, make sure you hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, and wear light-weight, breathable clothes.  Make sure you're breathing.  If those things don't help, try breaking your walk up, do 15 minutes in the morning, 15 minutes at night, and see if that helps.  Depending on your fitness level, maybe a full half hour is just too much for you right now.

  • This is the first time in 2 weeks that I had trouble with the half hour. 

    I'm going to concentrate a lot on hydration, because I've always been bad at that.  And it will help to not do it in the middle of the day... 

  • Hydrate!

    I didn't hydrate enough yesterday and I definitely felt it during my race today! And it took me a good 5 hours to get rehydrated and I still have a headache from it! I have spurts that have me occassionally drinking a ton and occassionally forgetting!

    Drink, drink, drink, and drink!
