How have you been handling running in the summer? With the heat and humidity it’s pretty tough, right?
If you’re a new runner, this may be your first time running in high temperatures. I can tell you that no matter how long you’ve been a runner, it is always an adjustment to transition to summer running! In Philadelphia, we’re heading into our 5th heat wave of over 90-degree temperatures and there is no end in sight! But if you’re training for a race, you can’t let a little thing like hot weather stop you!
For this month’s Running 101, I’m going to share some of my greatest tips for conquering summer running. Yes, it’s challenging and sometimes absolutely miserable but you can do it – without resorting to the treadmill every day!
I’ve previously shared the following Running 101 topics:
