TOPIC OF THE WEEK
Don't forget to Hydrate (especially around the Holidays as we're eating a lot of sugary food and drinking more alcohol).
GUIDELINES: Drink no more than 1 cup of water every twenty minutes. You can also weigh yourself before and after you e...xercise to get a sense of how much fluid you typically lose. One pound is equivalent to approximately 24 ounces of fluid. Dehydration in athletes/exercisers may lead to fatigue, poor performance, decreased coordination and muscle cramping. But don't OVERHYDRATE . . . use the guidelines above or just drink when you're thirsty! The mantra of "drink, drink, drink" is NOT encouraged.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AN ATHELETE?
Being an athlete is not just being fit or skilled, it also means having the mental toughness to bounce back.
