The last Wednesday of the month means it’s time for the running round up with five of my best running friends. This month, it’s all about speed, even at the height of hotness.

Now that you know how to beat the heat out there, here are five workouts you can do. Just add ice:
You now have everything you need to hit the track (or tread) for some speed…just don’t forget the ice!
