With the heat wave we have been going through, training had been a “challenge” to put it mildly. Like many of you out there, I have been focusing on how to adjust my training paces, and properly hydrate for the heat. The other night after a frustratingly hot swim, I came home hungrier than usual. Normally when I get out of the water, I am not very hungry; even after swims of an hour or more. The other nigh, however, I couldn’t get the cookies and sugary goodness in my face fast enough. This got me thinking: with all the discussion around how to hydrate for heat, can we benefit by changing how we eat in the heat?
So I turned to the good ‘ole interwebs to ask the question: What do I need to eat for heat training?
