8 Tips for Running in the Heat

In most of the world, runners have to log miles in weather that’s less than perfect from time to time. Whether you are preparing to take on 30 Day Breakaway, training for your 10th marathon, or just getting started as a runner, it’s a great idea to make sure you can handle warm (or even hot) weather.

There’s no disputing the benefits of running. But when it comes to optimizing those benefits, where are you best off running? Is it better running on a treadmill or outside to lose weight? To build muscle? To build consistency and stick with your new running habit for good? In the race of running on a treadmill vs. outside, who wins? Here, we explain exactly how outdoor and treadmill running compare, and how to balance the benefits of both outdoor and indoor running for the best results. Effectiveness of Running on Treadmill vs. Outside Your body is going to work slightly harder when running outside as opposed to running on a treadmill. “Outdoor running will get more muscle activation because your feet actually have to grab the floor to propel you forward, whereas some of that work gets done for you as the belt moves underneath you with the treadmill,” says Chicago-based...
