Hot Weather Essentials
Running or training in hot weather conditions comes with its own set of challenges. Hot sun leads to increased sweating and a higher risk of dehydration, making it important that you follow hot weather safety tips when exercising in high temperatures.
Our collection of water bottles and headbands will help provide you with relief while decreasing your risk of overheating, making them necessary and beneficial for all of your summer workout needs.
The Importance of Hydration
One of the easiest and most dangerous situations you can end up in when running, training, or racing outside is a state of dehydration. When you exercise in hot weather, your body naturally sweats more, which leads to increased and quicker fluid loss than usual. This means you will need to replenish those fluids at a higher rate as well.
There are a variety of factors that affect how much fluid you need and how much you will lose during your workout, such as the duration and intensity of the exercise, outside temperature and humidity levels, and your body weight. If you do end up dehydrated, you may experience symptoms such as headaches, rapid heart rate, and fatigue, all of which will prevent you from racing to your full potential.
It is recommended that to avoid experiencing dehydration, which can cause you to have to stop your workout and seek help, you should drink somewhere between 10 and 15 oz of water around 10 to 15 minutes before your workout. Once you begin your workout, you should stop for water breaks or drink a few sips mid-stride around every half hour to ensure your fluid levels don’t dip too low.
Use your own personal judgment; if you feel like you are sweating a lot, if it is extremely hot outside, if you are completing an intense workout, or if you feel lightheaded at any point, stop and hydrate to reduce the risk of having to take a more drastic break from your training.

The Benefits of Headbands
Not only do headbands make the perfect finishing touch to your race or workout outfit, but they also provide a range of practical benefits as well, making them essential to any training session.
One of the primary functions of headbands is to keep your hair away from your face and off the back of your neck so you can focus on your workout or race without distractions. Headbands can also help reduce the likelihood of excess head sweat dripping down into your face and eyes. Our Skinny Headband 2 Pack is designed to keep your face as clear and cool as possible.
