- I've been running twice a week, ever since I was 17 years old (currently in my 30's).
- Running always takes place outside (never in a gym or an air-conditioned space).
- I run in most weeks of the year (45+), no matter the season (hot / humid climate too).
- Running time is always 1-2 hours before sunset.
things to take into consideration
- Heat and humidity affect the body in different ways (see here)
- Running in heat below body temperature should be fine (according to slate.com)
- Running in heat can be dangerous (according to Caitlyn Zimmerman - marine scientist / marathon runner)
- Running in humidity is mostly discussed on the web in the "how to deal with" context instead of "the dangers of" context (like this for example)
I intend to continue running for as long as I am capable of it, but I wouldn't want to harm or damage my body / physical potential.
Is it getting more dangerous to run in hot/humid climates as I get older?
Should I consider changing my running habits with age (limit humidity conditions for example)?
