I can’t resist to post about running in warm weather each time we get hit with such blessed conditions. But first let’s make it absolutely clear that our current weather is simply pleasantly warm, and that the hot weather is something completely different (there will be more posts when we get to that crossing 😉).
For those who don’t know me, I am a bone fide hot weather aficionado who loves this transition and gets exited about possible running in scorching conditions. Am I normal? Well, I dunno, but I still love the freedom of running in blistering heat. Today I deliberately started my 15 km run at 12.30 when the sun was hovering right above me and was chuffed to see many like me on this route. For those who are uncertain, who dread or simply dislike sizzlers, I can only say - enjoy all that’s given to us. This is no reason to avoid running. Run early in the day, run slow and run in the shade. Apply sun protection! Take walking breaks! And if you follow three simple points - rest, quality diet and electrolyte reach hydration (with regular water intake) you will run in comfort of a gazelle, no matter how high the Celsius is. Try! 😎
