Learn about the physiological benefits of heat training from my friend, training partner, and guest blogger Dan!

He hopes that after reading this you are warmed up to the idea (pun intended) that heat training can improve your race performance, regardless of temperature.

If you’re like me, the answer is YES to them all.
