Training in heat

Sorry not sure what happened with my topic

I ride way earlier in the am. Or I slow down a lot when it is crazy hot like it has been in GA lately.

I ride crazy early when it’s going to be crazy hot. Lots of water. If it’s a long endurance ride, I will stop for a coffee (I normally don’t do that).

Heat affects everyone and it can be dangerous. The hotter it gets the more you need to backoff power and/or take longer to recover. I see it as my limiter as much as nutrition or time available for training.

The wheels came off for me when i overheated on 3rd loop of IMAZ. I couldn’t hold my watts anymore. I stopped at next aid station and asked to be doused with cold water and i put ice everywhere. Then a few minutes later, I was able to go back to normal target watts.

Looks like you edited it and accidentally overwrote the lengthy message.

I can revert it to the original info if you’d like.
