What keeps you moving through a ridiculously hot run?

What keeps you moving through a ridiculously hot run? For me, it's keeping control of my breathing, which in turn keeps me calm and relaxed, and furthermore focused on the task at hand. Now, take this with a grain of salt. If conditions and/or your own internal alarms are going off, then stop or don't go out on that run/workout/etc. Let me just state that I am not a doctor nor a running coach. I only offer my own experiences and self experiments to share and have others take away what rings and aligns with them. I do suggest the best way to find out what works best for you, and what your body is capable of, is to go out and try it responsibly. Remember run (bike/hike/swim/etc.) smart and responsibly. :) By the way, the Garmin Fenix 3 has been a solid watch for me. I got mine (below) back when it was only offered with the heart rate monitor band, before the one with a built-in heart rate monitor was released. So, lately I don't where the band all that often due to forgetting to grabbing it. I also got waaay to focused on heart rate when I first starting trail running. To the point where I wasn't just letting go and running, as I was too focused on what my heart rate was at any given moment. That said, where it provides a ton of other data, Garmin calls "Running Dynamics," in addition to heart rate.
