Even though it is hot, thatdoesn't mean you should forgooutdoor activity said LindsayHadlock, SDSU Extension Com-munity Food Policy Field Special-ist.Although Hadlock acknowl-edges that exercising in the heatcan be a risky activity as yourbody heats up faster and has aharder time getting rid of heat,she shares ways we can prepareour body for exercising in theheat."It's important to be cautiouswhen exercising in the heat. Heatillnesses can be very serious andeven result in death, when thebody isn't able to regulate its coretemperature. Heat stroke, heatexhaustion, heat cramps andheat rash are all different typesof heat illnesses with heat strokeand exhaustion being the mostserious," she said. "However, heatis not an excuse to become acouch potato."Tips to consider before, duringand after exercise:•Get Hydrated: Maintainproper hydration before, duringand after a workout. Check outthe recommendations for hydra-tion provided by the AmericanCollege of Sports Medicine(http://www.acsm.org/docs/brochures/selecting-and-effectively-using-hydration-for-fitness.pdf).•Acclimate: If you are trainingfor an event that will take placein the heat, you should train inthe heat. It will take approxi-mately 14 days for your body toget acclimated to exercising inthe heat.•Don't exercise during peakheat: If you are not training foran event in the heat, try to exer-cise during cooler parts of the day,such as the earlier morning orevening.•Plan your route: Whether youare walking, running, biking,kayaking or hiking, choose aroute that has ample shade toavoid direct sunlight. Pay atten-tion to how long it will take youand check out the forecasted heatduring that time.•Wear light, breathable cloth-ing: Choose clothing that is lightin color and weight to reflect lightand keep you cool. Invest in cloth-ing that has wicking propertiesthat will wick the sweat fromyour body and aid in evaporation.•Take it easy: Striving for apersonal record or trying a newand challenging activity is bestsaved for cooler days or indoorsduring the hot summer months.Go out and get your activity donebut be aware of when it is time toslow it down.•Wear sunscreen: Make sureyou protect your skin from thesun's harsh gaze by applying sun-screen, and wearing a widebrimmed hat and sunglasses.•Be aware of the signs andsymptoms of heat illness: Musclecramps, nausea and vomiting,weakness, headache, dizzinessand confusion are all cause foralarm. Pay attention to your bodyand don't ignore the signs andsymptoms of heat illness.
Staying active in the heat
Town and Country CFEL contin-ued to meet during the hot sum-mer months. Meetings have beeneasy and relaxed but that doesn’tmean that members haven’t beenbusy and community-minded.The club is spearheading a proj-ect to get lists of emergencyphone numbers into privatehomes. They have ordered 500 re-frigerator magnets from StatelineDesigns, Lemmon, which will becomplimentary gifts to anyone inthe community who would likeone.The 3.5 x 6 inch magnet willfeature phone numbers for thelocal ambulance, firefighters andthe sheriff’s department in addi-tion to the clinics in Bison andHettinger, the hospital, poisoncontrol and suicide preventionhotlines and also for Communi-ties Against Violence and Abuseand Three Rivers Mental Healthand Chemical Dependency Cen-ter. A committee consisting of Car-olyn Hendricks, Diana Landisand Bernice Kari worked out thedetails for the order.Some members have writtenletters to Senators Thune andJohnson and RepresentativeNoem in response to a law thatwent into effect on July 1. Thelaw requires diabetes patients topick up their testing strips in per-son at their pharmacies or havethem mailed from federally-ap-proved mail-order centers. Localpharmacies may no longer mailthe strips to patients.The club sponsored six Begin-ner 4-H awards at the PerkinsCounty Fair. Everett Paul wonfive of the categories and TaylorFisher the other one. Cashawards were mailed to the win-ners. At every meeting, club memberstake a few minutes for education.In July, Sarah Juergens visitedwhen Hendricks hosted and pre-sented a program about WildTree products, which are 100%organic. She encouraged every-one to always read food labels tobe aware of what’s in the prod-ucts that they buy. When MaryEllen Fried hosted in August, shegave an interesting recap of theWounded Warriors program. Sheencouraged members to visit thewebsite for further information.Coming up this month is the an-nual state convention in Huronon Sept. 13-14. Several membersfrom Town and Country will at-tend. The Annual Fall Councilmeeting is scheduled for October19 in Bison. As always, new members are al-ways welcome. Why not makeplans to visit the Sept. 26 meet-ing? Call 244-5231 for more infor-mation.
