- The time of day is important. Unless you are training for an event that takes place in the daytime heat, try to avoid exercising from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s the hottest part of day. Typically, the early morning is the best time to workout, especially if it’s going to be scorcher that day.
- Wear loose, light-colored. The lighter color will help reflect heat, and cotton material will help the evaporation of sweat. You can also try specially designed, “hi-tech” running shirts and shorts. They are often made from material meant to keep you cool.
- Sunscreen is a must. We recommend SPF 45 just to be safe. It’s important to protect your skin. You can get burned and suffer sun damage to your skin even on cloudy days.
- Stay hydrated. Before you go out, drink a glass or two of water. Carry a bottle of water or even a hydration pack. Take a drink every 15 minutes, even when you’re not thirsty. When you’re done with your workout, have a few more glasses of water.
