Sunday- 5 miles, 8:13 avg pace. Cut my run short because I was SO hot. I ran midday and I’m really not used to that yet! Lately I’ve only been running early in the morning before the sun comes out and my body is NOT ready for heat yet!!
42 miles, 7:53 avg pace
As my body adjusts to the heat, my paces tend to be a little slower than they normally are. I have to Remind myself that this happens and it isn’t a big deal. Once my body fully adjusts, I’ll be fine. This year feels harder to adjust than it has in past years because it was colder than ever this past winter! These are some charts that have helped me rememebr what happens to my paces during the heat& humidity! I hope they help you too!
Much like winter running, summer running has an adjustment period too. It’s helpful to know your body’s limits when you’re trying to push it in the heat. Remember to take it easy and slow down if you’re feeling out of it. There have been plenty of hot weather runs that have left me drained because I pushed it too hard. Remember to drink lots of water too!
Enjoy your Memorial Day!!!
