Running Hot

  Running becomes a bit more challenging during the summer months.The temperature is much higher than we like it to be. Just going outside to get the paper seems life threatening. Here are some things you can do to keep from running hot.The first thing you should do before runs is, check the temperture.
It's not a good idea to run when the temperature is extreme.
It's just to darn hot to run.If the temperature feel ok for your fitness level, then go for it.Remember to hydrate prior to taking taking off. Wear your lightest running clothes. Remember the sunscreen and your sunglasses.A good runners cap is a must. Carrying water can be tricky during hot weather.It doesn't take long for it to heat up on you. If you take a drink with you, guzzle it soon into your run. If you feel faint, nauseous and have stopped sweating, find the nearest shade and hydrate.This can be a medical emergency.

Stay safe, Run strong!
