Try Short Distance Running for Summer

If you are a relatively new runner, it might take some time for you to adjust to running in hot weather during the summer. Even if you are training for a marathon, remember that there will always be a cooler day for a long run, and there's something to be said for finishing your run feeling good.

So, if the humidity is 90% and the temps are in the 80s even at 6am, try doing a 10-mile run instead of a 13-miler. If you feel that's not enough of a workout, do some indoor cross training later in the day--or go for a bike ride outside--you will always have a breeze!
