When we exercise in higher temperatures our body temperature obviously rises faster than in the Winter, we begin to sweat more, earlier. This means that we lose more water from our bodies more quickly and this can lead to muscle aches, soreness and dizziness making us shorten our workouts due to feeling unwell. The humidity is often higher in higher temperatures in many countries as water evaporates more easily and so moisture is airborne more easily.

In order to maintain a reasonable body temperature you should be looking to take on more water before training - you can lose up to 3% in a medium length run in higher temperatures - so that you can maintain your pace as you normally would. It is best to start your sessions more slowly than you might in the Autumn or Winter time so that you can adjust your speed when you are reaching the halfway point in your workout, when you can safely speed up if you feel OK.

Celery sticks, apples and carrot pieces can help you out as you go if you are on a longer route and also keep your spirits up if you are feeling hotter than normal; they replace electrolytes lost during the routine. Sports drinks are often high in calories and mso may not be ideal to drink during training unless you are lifting really heavy weights or performing ongoing HIIT etc.

Make sure that your clothing is on your side, loose fitting light coloured clothing will be best and materials that let your skin breathe effectively rather than stopping your sweat evaporating. More air circulating around you and moving over your skin will allow greater cooling of your body through evaporation and conduction.
