If You Are Warm Now, What Are You Going To Do When It's Really Hot Outside?

I lost track of how many times my dad said those words to me.   As a kid, without fail, every late May I would start complaining about how hot it was outside.  It was inevitable since it was freakin' freezing cold all winter here in Iowa so when it hit about 60-70 degrees in May, I would turn into a sweaty gooey mess immediately.

And with one complaint, I would hear him say, "if you're warm now, what are you going to do when it's really hot outside?".   The smart ass response would always be, "Melt I guess"  or  "stay inside".  

But as a grown up runner, my response is different.  I usually freak out a bit and wonder, "What am I going to do when it is really hot outside?"

I am not a hot weather runner.  When it is above 80, my running suffers dramatically.   And I have been through one round of heat stroke and really don't care to live through that again.   So each year, about this time, I did through all the great advice offered in the Lounge around acclimating and running in hot weather.  

Here is a look back at some of the great tips on running in heat.   There are categories on Weather and Environment and Nutrition and Hydration if you want to page through the additional articles on your own.

Im' not a hot weather runner either -- in fact, I HATE it... I ran the twin cities marathon in like 18930509823% humidity and wanted to die. Misery.

This spring has been cool and it has been a running paradise...

Hey, are you guys going to ressurect "Take it and run Thursday?"

Thanks for all the great links. I don't mind the heat so much as long as there is lots of water for drinking and running through and to float in when the run is over otherwise give me early morning running before the sun comes up.

I'd love to see "Take it and Run Thursday" brought back also.

My friend and I were talking about this last night as we were running in the most humid conditions so far this year. It's like running the really cold air for the first time in the season -- it's quite a shock to the system. Eventually, though, it doesn't seem so bad.

I am the odd one out, I suppose living in Georgia for 11 years will do this to you but I enjoy running in the heat. I obviously hydrate well but it feels better to me that a run in the bitter cold that is for sure.

Diflucan (fluconazole ) is an antifungal antibiotic.

Diflucan is used to treat infections caused by fungus, which can invade any part of the body including the mouth, throat, esophagus, lungs, bladder, genital area, and the blood.
