In the July issue of Outside magazine, there is an article titled, “Ice the Competition, the secret to performing in hot weather” by Justin Nyberg:

The latest endurance booster might give you a headache. A new study published in the journal of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise found that runners who drank a 10-ounce slushie (made of blended ice and sugar water) were able to run 19 percent longer before exhaustion in 93-degree heat than a control group drinking the same ice-cold beverage in liquid form. Because a slushi is mostly bits of ice suspended in syrupy water, it can stay fluid below 32-degrees and drop your core temperature by half a degree more than 33-degree sugar water without ice. “While that doesn’t sound like much, half a degree will make a big difference in terms of your performance, especially at the elite level,” says study co-author Paul Laursen.

To make your own pre-workout slushi, puree ice in a blender with just enough syrup (like Torani, $8; www.torani.com) and sports drink to make it go down easy. Drink about eight ounces 30 minutes before the event-and be prepared for the brain freeze.

    18:35. Got through the DLs faster than expected but not without serious foot pain from whipping myself with the rope. Newley, good call forcing the issue on the DLs. Eric, I was wondering what happened to you. Where does the CF7 running club meet? I know its the TCU track but where exactly?

    Whoa, you weren’t kidding about that beer WOD Whisky, wow.

    Ok!! So, CF7 Run Club!!

    Tomorrow morning, 5:30 am in the parking lot by the TCU track. (It’s also the tennis court parking lot, when you drive in, stay right to park below the track.) It will be a loop so you can leave whenever you need to.. Somewhere around 4/5 miles.. We will warm up a mile and run around 8:45/9 min mile?

    It’s a great day.. I can actually do DUs, thanks for the push Newly! AND just so you know Ryan Amie and Whisky, I was too tired to do tabata sit ups, so there.
