Heat & hydration tips for safe summer training and racing,

Running on a day that is both hot and humid is more dangerous because sweat rolls off your skin onto the ground rather than cooling you off through evaporation, due to the high moisture content of the air. You still sweat, but the sweat does not have the desired cooling effect, so heat builds up in your body and your core temperature increases. This is particularly true during races, when competitive urges make many runners ignore their body’s warning signals. Races of 5K to 10K in extreme heat and humidity can pose the greatest danger of overheating because your running intensity (and therefore heat production) is so high that your body cannot eliminate heat quickly enough to prevent a steady increase in core temperature. In those conditions, the best plan is to reduce your pace from the start.
