Heat and HR have a huge impact on each other as it requires quite a bit more energy from your body to keep itself cool in the heat and thus drives up your HR. You can/should definitely slow down as the heat increases to keep you at a similar effort level. In terms of hydration, there are lots of great non-sugary electrolyte drink additives like Nuun, LMNT, Liquid IV etc that can help. It really comes down to a taste/flavor preference for that.
Background; I live in a fairly warm area in the spring/summer (80-100F) and tend to be a person who overheats quite a bit (I’m very sweaty) when the temperature is above 70F.
Questions: How do heat and HR interact? I notice my HR skyrockets when it’s hot outside
Should I be slowing down even more during Z1/2 training when it’s hot outside?
What are some good alternatives to salt pills/super sugary hydration drinks to rehydrate?
