Tips for working out in the summer

As excited as we want you to be about going for a run or a bike ride on a new trail, we also want you to be safe. With summer comes heat, which means you have to take a few extra precautions. Heat stroke is a serious medical condition and is nothing to ignore. Here are a few things you can do to make sure you will want to go back.

Timing is everything – We all know that temperatures can really soar during the summer, especially later in the day. Pay attention to the weather and do your exercise early in the morning or later in the afternoon. On the hottest days, it’s most advisable to avoid the peak hours of heat.

Fashion sense – Black might be slimming, but it’s the worst choice for clothing colors for running or biking on the hottest of days. Loose and light-colored options are recommended for just about any outdoor activity taking place outside.

Water everywhere – Nothing is more important to staying safe during a run on a hot day as is hydration. Exercise experts recommend that people load up on water before, during and after activity. Carry some water with you if at all possible. Don’t be afraid to adjust your pace and take frequent breaks when it’s really hot outside.
