Health Tip: Running in Hot Weather

Health Tip: Running in Hot Weather

06/27/13

(HealthDay News) -- If you're planning to run in hot weather, the Road Runners Club of America offers these safety tips before you start:

  • Drink enough fluids, preferably water. Plan your route so you can refill your water bottle along the way.
  • If the temperature outside is above 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity is above 70 percent, run indoors.
  • Stop running if you feel dizzy or nauseated, if you stop sweating or you get the chills.
  • Run in the shade, avoiding direct sunlight and blacktop.
  • Talk to your doctor about running in the heat if you have any respiratory or cardiac condition.
  • Make sure children run in the early morning or late in the day, to avoid peak heat.
  • Wear lightweight, breathable, light-colored clothing, avoiding long sleeves and long pants.
