It's been all kinds of hot this week, which is to be expected given that it is July.
But heat like this (high, high-90s) doesn't always make for great runs. And yet, I've had a few. Wednesday evening tempo run, Friday late-afternoon easy run.
My Friday run rocked, even though it was probably 94 degrees when I headed out.
Because I did a few things right (at least in my opinion, I'm no doctor or sports expert):
- I hydrated early and often throughout the day
- I had a little extra salt with my meals and snacks
- I embraced the heat
- I ran easy
