My Current Thoughts:  Best time to walk on a hot day?

When I first started walking consistently, I never really cared about what time I would walk. For example, if it was clear skies with an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, I would start my walk around 2pm and walk for about two hours. 

The reality was, that I was too tired from the sun, and couldn't function the rest of the day. In saying that, these days, the heat waves here in Canada have made walking outside challenging from May to August. 

My solution was to increase my treadmill time indoors in a controlled environment. It's not as fun as the outdoors, but it works for now. 

The other solution is to walk on cloudy days. It's not perfect because the heat is still prominent, but the good news is, that I have more energy after my walk because there is no direct sunlight.
