Training in summer heat

Postby kbedrich » Thu Jun 09, 2016 10:29 am

Ran across a good article about acclimatizing to training in summer heat, which can be brutal here in Houston.

http://running.competitor.com/2014/07/training/heat-acclimatization-for-runners_12035

Highlights:
- Getting used to training in the heat takes regular training for about 2 weeks
- Sweat, cardio, and exercise performance improves as acclimatization occurs
- Adaptation to the heat is lost at about twice the rate as it's acquired. The first to go? Cardio.

Any other runners and triathletes out there have any tips?
