Drink that salt solution

I have come to a sudden realisation that things you do to look after yourself during exercising in the heat are the exact same things you should do while harvesting an experiment in the heat. In my specific case, drinking electrolyte replacements.

Working hard in hot and humid environments often leaves me feeling nauseated from the enormous volume of water I drink to replace all that sweat. Nausea leads to puking and to an intense feeling of how unfair the world is that my body thinks puking when dehydrated is The Thing To Do. I hadn’t connected the dots until this week, but nausea is associated with electrolyte imbalance. Thus, I should be drinking salts while sweating out salts. Logical, no?

Must’ve rolled low on that wisdom check…
