Dune, training depends on the situation of the race. For example, when in the past we went for training in altitude. that normally is dry and more fresh, we had different results competing soon after going down, during the first 48 hours. When the situation of the race was very hot and humid, the athletes competed in bad way. When the competition was in the same conditions of training, we had very good results.
My advice is, in any case :
a) The most part of TRAINING OF QUANTITY must be done when weather is good (may be at 5:00 in the morning or at 9:00 p.m. You cannot use a normal training of volume in very hot conditions, because you have to take care about the recovery after training.
b) If you go for TRAINING OF QUALITY, with high intensity but not very much volume, and short distances (may be no longer than 500m) you can also go when is very hot. In this case, you must have care in opening the recovery times (for ex., when you normally use 3:00, going to 5:00) and using a lot of water for drinking and refreshing, possibly resting where there is shadow.
Training of quality in the same condidtions of the race is good, for having a better adaptation.
c) Generally, you can go for training of speed also when is very hot, not for training of endurance
d) About food and drinking, I advice to use more vegetables for reintegration of vitamins, to drink a lot (ad water is the best thing), to eat using more salt for replacing what you lose in training.
Regarding Marathon, I explained in another new post what I normally use when the race is very hot and humid.
