Is one water-stop on a 5k race in the 90's adequate? Don't know if I was dehydrated...I certainly drank enough Starbucks before the race.

But yes, heat seems to knock me out more than it used to do. Growing up in California, 90 degrees wasn't that uncommon; we'd often have days in the 100's! But now, on hot days, I have to slow down, drink more, take it slowly.

I came home, took a shower, and had a nice nap...at 11am! Felt so good.

If it works out to a drink every half hour, maybe not. california is uss. drier heat than midwest, just to cut ourselves a little slack. Good recovery!
