Thermoregulation: Pulling Out All the Stops in Hot Training or Racing

Heat and humidity are rough.

What are things you’ve ever done to stay cool or manage thermoregulation while racing or training?

(or seen others do that you wish you’d thought of)

From the basics like apparel choices, where you’ve stuffed ice :flushed:, running in shade where possible etc etc.

All ideas welcome.

Lower the intensity, wait for the evening in a race and power on then. This is not always possible and when racing in Australia, it’s just a case of getting used to it. Don’t wear black and move as little as possible before hand.
