Default It's training camp, and it's hot

I just heard on the local TV news that Spencer and Moulds left the field due to heat exhaustion.

Remember - this is a news report so take it FWIW. No need to panic yet - I'm sure they can recover.

Oops. Thanks - I corrected it. I'll leave a little tip for you in your jar.

I ran 8 1/2 miles this morning at 5:00 and was soaked in sweat after the first couple, and that was with no sun.

8 1/2 miles? I would die, if not from exhaustion then boredom. Car not working?

Am I the only one who thinks this summer has actually been fairly pleasant? I remember last year being a scorcher, and so far, it's just seemed cooler out to me. Don't know if I am just sort of used to it now or what.

Moulds left really early. I saw Spencer for about half the practice but didn't notice him leave. They weren't the only players showing signs of heat "frustration."

That's scary, especially for Spencer since he's one of the larger (maybe the largest ?) players on the roster. Remember Korey Stringer ?
And Spencer played ball at Pitt and is from NY state. I doubt that he's ever been exposed to this kinda heat we have here in Houston.

Good thing Moulds won't have to participate in afternoon practices every day. I would like to see him through the mornings though.

Oh well. Practice session one is in the books.

Those were my "instant thoughts", but it is just day one. Everything will be fine.

Maybe it was just me but it seemed hotter out there at 9:30 a.m. than it does at 7:30 p.m. RH is typically a lot higher in the morning anyway, and with all the rain recently it was thick. It was pretty brutal for a while then a little breeze kicked up from the south that helped a bit. That and the defense wearing deep steel blue. There were a lot of helmets coming off and players running water over their heads and into their helmets. ...while Kubiak was wearing his patented long sleeve sweatshirt.

I didn't see Moulds leave but Spencer walked off slowly to the bubble with a trainer in tow about two-thirds thru practice. Frankly I am glad to hear it was heat rather than a turned ankle or something.

Buchanon had to have a two taped mid practice--hopefully preventative.

Have to agree--maybe because it was getting hotter instead of cooling off. Thank goodness for the breeze right at the end.

It's the angle of the sun, and remember its really 10:30 when you back out
daylignt ST. That's virtually mid day as far as sun angle goes, and those are the most penetrating sun rays. 7:30 PM makes for a relatively beneign sun in the summertime compared to mid day.

Actually I was going to run 11 miles, but my route takes me close to my house after 8.5 and I have to run away from home and back to get in the 11. It was so humid I didn't have the mental fortitude to continue - and I didn't want to overdo it and have my own heat problems either. I was completely soaked, like I had jumped in a pool before starting my run. At the end my feet were squishing with every step I took since my shoes were filled with tepid pools of my own sweat.

Well, it is just that it is getting hotter faster this year. Normally this heat isn't until mid Aug.

I do know why I typed 7:30 ... I was just talking to someone else about evening practices. The only thing bad about 7:30 practices - for the fans - is staring into the setting sun.

For some reason the heat didn't seem as bad to me as the evening practices. Maybe it was because the sun was at our backs and we did have a little breeze. Kubiak is the MAN!!!! Didn't look like the heat even fazed him at all, even with that sweat shirt on.

Aj!! Missed seeing ya!
