From the field to the tracks, athletes training at Clovis West Wednesday looked like they needed an ice bath, not a workout.
Players practiced in pads in triple digit heat.
Brandon Eachus and Colin Spence hit the tracks.
“I'm part of a running club and this is when we have our workouts,” said Spence.
“We’re just getting a little workout in... just in the afternoon…we live in Fresno we go through this every single year,” said Eachus.
But some climatologists say it has never been this hot.
July went down in history books as the hottest month ever recorded in the United States, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
So while the team sweat it out, tennis player Lauren Cunningham headed to the mall.
“Right now we're practicing in the morning so it's not as bad but when it gets 105 it's too hot for me,” said Cunningham.
Heat exhaustion is also a big concern for parents.
“I hate to see the kids play in this kind of heat,” said Jackie Carr.
Jackie Carr’s grandson coaches football and knows the drill.
“They need to make sure they drink a lot of water and take breaks,” said Carr.
Running and refueling…yes.
Changing their high-speed fitness routines… not this summer.
“The heat itself... there's really no way around it,” said Eachus.
“Obviously with some of the heat related injuries we've had over the years... there's more awareness of it now... You just have to be smart about it. Hydration is the biggest thing,” said Spence.
