Training Lessons (How NOT to exit the gym after a workout!)

Friday, January 27th, 2012

I started off my week in a manner which I do NOT recommend to anyone in training. I have never been good about keeping myself hydrated through a day, but my Monday experience taught me a lesson — keep hydrated.

It seems that after a great workout at the gym Monday morning, on my way out of the locker room I fainted as the result of dehydration, result — a non-graceful exit from the gym guided on a stretcher by the EMT responders. The resultant one night stand at the hospital provided me with ample time to think about hydration :-), and the “shoulds” that I need to keep in mind a I train for that Pan-Mass Challenge ride in August.
