Too Hot to Run?

Too Hot to Run?

Run it Out

When warm weather hits, many avid runners hit the pavement. But what happens when temperatures and humidity levels climb into the high 80s and 90s? Should runners still power through the heat and sweat it out?

Hustling Heat

Depending on your age, weight, and gender, running in extreme heat can have some adverse effects, which can really compromise a runner’s relationship with summer.

Many experienced personal trainers caution against running outside when the temperature is higher than the average person’s body temperature.

Beat the Heat

If you are still serious about running this summer, or you are training for an upcoming marathon, then try to avoid running during the hottest part of the day at all costs.

Go for early morning or evening runs when temperatures are cooler, eat a good amount of antioxidants, wear the proper gear, and above all, stay hydrated.
