How to run in the heat?

When you are working out in the heat there are a few tips you need to keep in mind:

Stay hydrated…

The first tip you need to follow when exercising in the heat is to stay hydrated. Water works fine for a slow walk. However, if you’re planning a full-on run, or anything over 10 minutes, it’s best to consider a re-hydration drink. Performance Inspired offers a Ready 2Go Protein that will help you stay hydrated, and are easy to tote on the go.

Run at the right time…

The time you choose to schedule your run can either work for you or against you. In hot summer months, it’s best to hit it first thing in the morning, or after the sun sets. Avoid running between the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM.

Dress accordingly….

Wear light or pale-colored clothing to better reflect the sun’s rays. And, invest in loose-fitting running gear that welcomes any breeze with ease.

Start slow and know when to quit….

It is important that you start your run off a bit slower than usual when the sun is beating down. This prevents your body temperature from rising too high early in the workout. If you start hard, you could slow down prematurely. Listen to your body, and if it feels overworked, it’s time to shut it down.

It won’t happen overnight!

Learning to work out in the heat won’t happen overnight. It usually takes two weeks for your body to acclimate. But, this varies based on body type. So, be patient with yourself and stay aware of how you’re feeling!
