- Slow down by 30 sec/mile (20 sec/km) for every 5F temperature increase above 55-60F ( every 2.5C above 14C)
- When the temperature is over 70F (21C) you may take a 5 minute “cold shower break” every 25-30 minutes to keep cool.
- Try to complete your run before the sun rises above the horizon. More frequent walk breaks during hot weather can lower body temperature increase.
- If you used to run 3 minutes between walk breaks, run only 90 seconds (walk 30 seconds) at 70F (21C) and at 80F (26C) drop to 60 sec run/30 sec walk or 30/30
- When you start to heat up more than normal, take a longer walk in a mall or indoor AC building
- Pick shady courses on hot days.
- Don’t wear a hat! Pour water over your head
- Have an indoor alternative—treadmill, etc Run in the deep end of the pool, using a flotation belt
Weekend camp began Friday, July 24th at 5PM. Both camps began with an easy run to get acquainted. The morning breakfasts were followed by clinics by Jeff and his guests. Seminar topics include Running Injury Free, Nutrition, Speed work, Goal setting, Shoe selection, Pool running, and Running form / analysis.
After lunch, our guests shopped, went sightseeing, sunned by the pool, or joined the group for a scenic hike, T-shirt swap, bike ride, river raft ride, etc. The group gathered again in the evenings for dinner onsite or at one of the nearby restaurants and after-dinner relaxing.
