Heat Training And Acclimation – How To Run In The Heat

How To Run In The Heat
In this episode of the RunBuzz podcast, we discuss running in hot weather.  For example, did you know running on asphalt can increase the ground surface temperature around you by as much as 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit?

  • We discuss why you physiologically slow down in the heat, why it is not a bad thing, and what you can do to adjust your training. We teach you how to acclimatize to your climate and how your body adjusts when it acclimates.
  • We share a study that shows just how much you can expect to slow down based on the expected temperature ranges.
  • We discuss the use of cooling towels and cooling sleeves and what the studies show about their effectiveness.
  • We discuss what to wear, and what to avoid to keep you cool.
  • We talk about warm weather destination races and how to acclimatize even if you live in an area where temperatures are more moderate.

All this and more on today’s episode!

Thanks and Happy Running!
