Outdoor runs here in Southwest Florida can be brutal, but if you’re sticking to the treadmill, you’re missing out on some great scenery.
The key is managing the heat. We all know about hydrating and such, but another thing to keep in mind is time. As the day gets hotter, the more it will effect your run time. If you’re a competitive runner (or just like to keep track of your times), RunnersConnect has come up with a nifty calculator to figure how much the heat will slow you down. Simply put in distance and your typical time and it will give you an estimate about how many seconds or minutes you should expect to be off.
