Competing In Hot Climates
As mid-November approaches, I know our days of doing anything outdoors are pretty limited. With winter getting pretty close, I thought I would share something to make us think warm thoughts.
Read Gale Bernhardt's post from www.active.com about getting acclimated to warm climate events.
As the theory goes, you really can't control what the weather will do when you compete in an event. The best plan is to try and train in conditions that you EXPECT at your event so you're prepared. Heat is particularly tricky because it undoubtedly slows your pace and you have to be prepared to fight that off.
Hopefully, this post will help you think about warm thoughts and ideas for events next spring and summer. Off for a couple of days - see you soon!
