It’s hot! July in Washington D.C. Go figure… The hotter it gets the better I’m feeling. I may not be faster in the heat but I feel pretty darn good, considering. The one-two punches of heat and humidity is squeezing efficiency from my body and I’m feeling light on my feet and fired up. Anyone else enjoying their runs in the heat?
Speaking of fired up, good luck sitting still for more than 20 seconds after pressing play on this live version of Foster the People’s Helena Beat, one of Gaby’s current favorite bands.
Some pretty high heat and humidity here in Eastern Ontario now too. Not my favourite, but amazing how the body adapts.ReplyDelete
You're nuts. I take a summer break from running - I am in TX. 100/100 combo is not something I ever want to even think about. Our racing season here is all backwards, from October to June.ReplyDelete
Derrick- What is 'heat' up your way? Like, 70F? ; )ReplyDelete
Olga- I am thinking of running a certain Texas race in January, actually. No rest for the weary. Enjoy your rest this summer.
Haha. Nah, only about 34......CELCIUS!ReplyDelete
I can't say I'm loving the 100/100 here in SC, but it's not killer. Can't do afternoon/evening speedwork, though.ReplyDelete
Portland summers are really lame. 75 and sunny. It's hot when it reaches 80, and some days doesn't get much over 65. I'm getting soft...ReplyDelete
