Earlier this week, I ran what was to be a Tempo run but the conditions were very heavy with heat and humidity. I automatically slowed my pacing down and changed up my run/walk interval ratio. That helped alot but it still was an energy zapper for sure. Good for you for reading your body!!!
I agree with Nancy. Slow down your pace. Where I live, the humidity drops as the day goes on (I know, lucky me) so sometimes I choose to run later when the temperature is higher, but the humidity is lower. Mostly I am just looking forward to fall!

This morning I headed out for a run and within minutes I I felt my energy draining because of the high humidity. I switched to a run/walk instead. What are your techniques for running on high humidity days?
