Hyperthermic fatigue precedes a rapid reduction of serum sodium and cramping in an ironman triathlete
Watson, G., Laursen, P.B., Nosaka, K. and Abbiss, C. (2007) Hyperthermic fatigue precedes a rapid reduction of serum sodium and cramping in an ironman triathlete. In: 12th Annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS), 11–14 July 2007, Jyväskylä, Finland
We present two original observations. First, we document the attainment of a critically high internal body temperature in a triathlete performing in an Ironman triathlon that we believe directly influenced his ability to run fast. Second, this athlete experienced an unusually rapid reduction in blood sodium (Na+) that preceded cramping, despite presenting signs of dehydration.
