Heat Stroke & Summer Workouts
A heat stroke (heat injury) can occur when you work out or compete on a hot and / or humid summer day, don't drink enough or just push yourself too hard, while your skin is getting hotter and hotter. Heat strokes can be mortal and actually have a much higher death rate than most would expect. Especially those preparing for their first marathon or triathlon are at risk.
