Tips for running in the heat

  • Stay hydrated the day before your run
  • Carry water with you, or plan your run with water fountains
  • Try to dring something with electrolytes in it
  • Wear light coloured clothing
  • Always wear sunscreen
  • Keep an eye on your heart rate, and don’t expect to maintain your average.

It’s all about food, training and I expect gratuitous dog photos. Make sure you subscribe.
