Following on from our summer running and hydration essentials post here are 7 tips to help keep you cool when summer running.
1 Don't over do it
Start your run that bit slower than normal and speed up if you feel that you have the energy and are not too warm. Remember that if the heat increases significantly in a short period of time, you need time to acclimatise to it. As temperatures rise significantly it can lower pace so take the temperature into account in your run times.
2 Choose your run time wisely
Obviously heading out in the middle of the day is not a good idea but early in the morning or late afternoon you can have milder weather making it more comfortable to run.
