How can I avoid getting too much sun when exercising?

Watch Your Shadow

The safest time to exercise outdoors without getting too much sun exposure is when your shadow is longer than your height. When it's shorter than you are, the sun is too high in the sky and you should limit your sun exposure. Wear sun screen in any case.
