A little reminder that it’s that time of year again. Be kind to yourself! Hydrate! It’s not your fault that you’re running slower.
Also, when it comes to temperature:
- 60 to 75 degrees: heart rate increases by two to four beats per minute.
- 75 to 90 degrees, heart rate increases up to 10 beats per minute
- Humidity increases it even more.
"Perceived effort is accordingly much greater as both the temperature and the humidity rise."
I need to remember this in the next few months!
