7) Don’t Do Everything at Once
There’s no way around it: you’re going to sweat. A lot. So, it might seem counterintuitive to take time off from running when it’s so hot outside. However, pushing yourself too hard can actually be more harmful than helpful.
8) Keep Hydrated After You’re Done Running
After you’ve finished your run, down at least 16 ounces of cool water to replenish lost fluids. If that’s not feasible, a sports drink will do in a pinch. Coconut water can be another great way to hydrate post-run. And, don’t forget to eat! Again, simple carbs—like some fruit or whole-grain toast—will help replace energy stores used during exercise and will prevent you from running on fumes later in the day.
