the heat gets me bad out here too...i have been getting severe charlie horses- i'm assuming due to loss of electrolytes etc...i try to drink powerade (seems like it has more electrolytes than gatorade) and water...but too much water alone won't do it. try to take it easy and of course take a bunch of breaks in the shade.
I have never had the D's the day after working outside. It was a total shock to me.
On the other hand I keep getting that old charley horse feeling in my calves, yes even right now, no matter how many bananas I eat.
I can't help but wonder how much of this is due to meds, I never used to feel like this before (near as I can remember) I started taking all these D*** pills.
Thanks for the inputs.
We only have about 3 more months of this crap.
