Don't drink a lot of water without restoring your sodium and potassium levels! Just water flushes these out of the body.

Ahhh see now here's the kind of information I'm looking for!  :cheers:
(I was eating salty potato chips!!!  :-D )

I surfed the web for some helpful hints & all I could find was drink water & stay in the AC. Well duhh... if I HAVE to be out in the heat that is completely not going to help me cope!!!!

Ok, I've got a giant can of mixed nuts packed. (yeah Walmart!) Salty & protein filled. We usually bring banana's & I planned to stop tonight to get some fresh ones for the cooler. We'll have our usual 5 gal's of Gatorade in the pit & 8oz water shots.

Any other helpful hints or power foods I can try out? I already know I'm going to be running my butt off this meet & we know it's going to be hot! I really really really want to get through this one without falling victim to the heat!  :-o

I'll have water in a cooler in my truck bed and I get all over the track.  PLEASE everyone, feel free to grab one - no need to ask.  I think everyone knows my truck but just in case - it's the bright blue Dodge Dakota with stripes on the hood and tailgate.  If we run out I'll get more.

Good points on the electrolytes and food.  I'll go looking for sugar free Gatorade, which could get interesting.

NO FAIR making fun of big hats at this meet!  I'll be wearing my big floppy hat and plenty of sunscreen (which I also have in the truck if anyone needs it).  And stay in the shade (yeah, right).  Those who volunteered last year may have selected the ECTA monster umbrella.  Use 'em if ya got 'em!

Powerade Zero is the only 0 calorie no sugar 'ade' that I have found.  Luckily, most of the flavors arfe pretty good and not too sweet tasting.  Grape is my favorite.  I usually alternate between that and water when running on track in this kind of weather starting the day before!  This weekend I will be spectating at MIR instead of running at Maxton so you all have a good time and stay safe so I can see you in Loring.   :cheers:

Also, Don't drink sport drinks exclusively, If you need that "flavor" to drink something Dilute it.  Sport drinks can play games with your operating systems

Just a comment from a Wisconsin guy that was run over by June 2009's heat.......

One of the best parts of road racing in the heat is the 'warm up' lap right after you toss half a bottle of cold water down the back of your leathers. That first lap around nicely freeze dries the water and you can grid in relative comfort.  :-)

Obviously there is no warm up lap in LSR....that refreshing blast of cold water turns your leathers and helmet into a terrarium!  :-P

At Maxton, that ice cold water starts to warm up awefully quick and I swear it comes close to boil when you are waiting for the preceding vehicle to clear the track. Half way down the airstrip it is an even odd bet that your attachments are going to get poached!

Hope this is a help to another Yankee or even a Canuck.

Mark

p.s. Thanks to DW Photos, I have a great photo of a big guy tucked on a little MX bike with one very FOGGY face shield.

We arrived here at the Pine Acres Motel in Laurinburg an hour ago.  The temp outside has since plummeted -- to about 96F.  The stories and rumors about high temps are true, so stock up on ice and sports drinks and liquids.  We stopped at a fresh fruit stand and got some peaches to eat at the track - yet another way to stay hydrated and tastefully satisfied, too.

I got to the track around 10:30am and left at 5:00pm,, Not a drop of rain while I was there,,, Temps from 10:30 to 2:30 right at 82 to 83 degrees between 2:30 and 5:00pm it gradually warmed to 88 degrees when the clouds let the sun through.
