    Heat sickness.

    Primal Fuel
    OK, I cope pretty badly with warm weather.
    BUT my weighted-walking sessions are usually around late morning or early noon (when uni stuff and shopping needs doing).
    And my heat-sickness is back.

    All I did was walk for 35min-ish either way with 25kg, not my lowest weight, but I've been on it for long enough to know it isn't an issue in itself. I had breakfast earlier and drank some water on the way. By the time I got home I was so overheated I felt like throwing up.

    Is there anything I can do to stop this or should weighted-walking be off the cards until it's cooler?

    I'm not sure if this will work for you but one idea we use at work (outside in AZ temperatues 90-100+ wearing bullet proof vests) is to slip those reusable freezer packs between our undershirts and our body armor. It does a decent job of keeping the core cooled. That said, it does not last long but it is definitely better than nothing. Perhaps you could put one under the weight vest?
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    No vest, but I may try strapping it between my back and the bag.
    Also contemplating forcing in some extra water over the day (maybe with rehydration salts).

    Ah, sorry, I thought it was a weighted vest. Perhaps you could wear a camel back filled with ice and a little water. That would provide a cooling agent and a means to hydrate.

    Back when I worked in a factory that was not air conditioned, during the summer I would get up at 5:00 am and run several miles, sweating like crazy. Doing that I was able to tolerate working in a 100F+ environment.
