Ok, so it is just spring...not summer, and I am already struggling with the increased temps. Yesterday and today I ran and it was in the mid 70's with about 70ish% humidity both days. I literally had to start walking after 5 miles today, and only ended up making 7.5 miles of my planned 8 miler. I guess I'm going to have to run earlier, at 7 or 8, instead of my usual 9 or 10am runs. Yesterday I even got that cold-chilled feeling that happens when you get really hot.
So let's talk about it. Tell me your best tips for staying cool while running in the heat. Anybody have any scary overheating stories? I am getting a little nervous about training for a fall marathon since that will mean running through the Charleston summer. Thoughts? Advice?
