Recently we talked about ways you can combat the stresses put on your body when it is exposed to heat and humidity. But have you ever wondered why we need to spend extra attention to hydration during the summer?
It starts (and ultimately ends) with thermoregulation, which when functioning efficiently helps keep the body cool. Maintaining a proper core temperature goes hand in hand with thermoregulation, and can be achieved by proper hydration. But, before dig any further, let’s remind ourselves how our body naturally keeps us cool. It works via four main processes’ or methods.
Near the end of every year, cycling apparel brand Rapha poses a challenge to riders around the world: ride 500 kilometers (around 310 miles) between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. This may seem easy enough, but once you throw in the usually less-than-enjoyable weather that time of year, holidays (and the usual travel and family obligations that come with them), and the abbreviated daylight hours, it starts to get a little inconvenient.
I usually complete the Festive 500 by chipping away at the mileage a little every day, with a few days of rest here and there to make time for family and the holidays. This last year, with more obligations than ever, I decided to get a little crazy, and try and complete the distance in one ride, and convince some of my more gullible/adventurous friends to join me.
