I need my exercise journal to understand that it's 90 degrees outside and I should be credited a few more burned cals! I can't believe it's already 90! So I'm going to be drinking more water for sure. Anyone have any other tips for working out in the heat?

i completely understand! I live in houston and we are in extreme drought conditions and we've hit 90+ degree weather. I personally LOVE the heat and sunshine, however I find it much more difficult to run in! Especially when you factor in humidity from the gulf! UGH fun! I dont have any advice, I try to run later at night when its not so hot, but I work in the yard, hike, bike ride etc, during the day and just drink more water and dont push myself as hard. I've told myself its ok for the same workout to take a little bit longer as long as it keeps me from dying! But I do hate that its dropped my running pace down. Its just so hard to do! Keep drinkin the water and take more breaks

Texas heat is the worst! I can't believe it's only April! I workout in the mornings, usually I'm done by 8am (9 on the weekends) to avoid the heat. I'm also a huge fan of the swimming pool, the only benefit to the 6 month summers here is that the pool is already open.

Drink lots of water, and take more breaks if needed, it's better than passing out.

wear a heartrate monitor so you don't push yourself to hard!

Katielynn - I'm so getting a heartrate monitor - I love that idea. Thx!

Mmmily - I wish I were a morning person! I think I'll have to go in the evening (I'm in FL btw). I think you're right about taking more breaks too. Thanks for the feedback!

Any Method to Edit Fitness Report?
try clicking on that activity in your exercise diary. It should bring up the specifics and allow you to change the time in much the same way as you can change the amount of food in your food diary.
