Good late morning, everyone! I was planning on posting much earlier today, but Baby Fish has been a hungry little thing this morning. It's nap time now though, so time to blog!
I'm linking up today with Erika, Patty, and April for Tuesdays on the Run.
1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!!
-You need extra hydration before your runs when it's hot outside. Make sure to up your water intake a little bit the day before a summer run.
-Plan your running route to include some water stops, or carry water with you.
-Make sure to replace your electrolytes, too! Any sports drink will help replace what you've sweated out during a warm weather run.
2. Wear breathable, sweat-wicking clothes.
3. Plan to run early or later in the day.
During the warmer months, you probably don't want to be running during peak heat hours. If you run early in the day, you'll avoid the sun, heat, and sometimes the humidity! I often run around dusk, but which helps avoid the hot sun, but often times it's a lot more humid at that time. Find what works for you, but do avoid running in the middle of the day.
4. Use a cool, wet towel.
Take one with you during your run, or have one ready to use when you get back. This really helps you cool off during or after a warm run! I got this idea after a race gave them out, and it really was just magical! I love to put it on my neck, as well as wipe my face off with it.
Question for you: What are some of your warm weather running tips?
