Influence of individual energy cost on running capacity in warm, humid environments


Challenging environmental conditions including heat and humidity are associated with particular risks to the health of runners and triathletes during prolonged events. The heat production of a runner is the product of its energy cost of running (C r) by its velocity. Since C r varies greatly among humans, those individuals with high C r are more exposed to… (More)
