Hey gang! Summer heat is here! Obviously this will effect your training. Remember, you have a range in each of your zones (pace, power or heart rate).
It’s normal for your pace and heart rate to rise this time of year. It’s ok to drop into the lower ranges of your zone during a particular training session.
1) Get out as early as possible.
2) Pay attention to perceived effort. If your zone 2 session feels too strained, back off a tad.
3) Hydrate well. Pay attention to the color of your urine. It should be SLIGHT tinge of color or nearly clear.
