Heat Monitoring: our athletic trainers and FCPS central office monitor heat and humidity on a daily basis and advise coaches when we're not allowed to practice outside and when we can practice outside but should modify our workouts.  We have modified our workouts a few times this season at which times, we've run in shaded woods and provided extra breaks and access to plenty of water.  Athletes that complain of dizziness or fatigue are always permitted to stop practicing and go inside.
