    When it gets around to the hotter temps, I start to think about heat acclimation, and I usually start a thread about it. Here is this years thread!

     

    Today, I was talking with my wife and I was wondering if training in hot weather would make performances in cooler weather better. For example, if I acclimatize to 85-90 degrees F, and then raced in 50 degrees, would it help my performance in 60 degrees, would it make the 60 degrees less stressful as well?

     

    An article about a study that sought to answer this question

    Here's another one

     

    There's is an improvement at lower temperatures at least for cyclists.

        Well, I'm hoping that is true. I'm training pretty hot right now, and if I'm lucky, some of the races I will be doing coming up will be in the 60's° F range.

        Shedding my baby fat ought to help, too. Cool
