Stay Hydrated: 

  • It is important to drink lots of fluids but within a proper timeframe
  • The key is not to just drink a bottle of water all at once one hour before you run
  • Take small/frequent sips of water throughout the day leading to your run in the warm weather
  • Don’t chug a bottle of water 5 minutes before you run because this will increase your possibility of major cramps while running
  • You need more fluids for your body in the heat because you are losing more through your sweat and if you don’t replenish your supply you will become overly dehydrated.
