Yeah, my normal run is between 4 and 6 in the morning. we had a spell when it was hot and humid even then. I suppose I could move indoors to the mall or the dreadmill. I need to quit finding reasons to reject the solutions and just do something that will keep me on track...

I feel the same way!!! emoticon ... My solution for now is to "Rise and Shine" !!! emoticon

emoticon The temperature is much cooler in the morning, so I beat the heat! If I wait to go at lunch time, I end up cutting short or I am seriously dehydrated for the rest of the day - not taking into account the headache! (When I have to do it at lunch (no option!), then I do interval training on the inside track at the gym... It is good to improve speed work...

emoticon Don't forget to drink your water!!! - I know you know... but emoticon

I also printed out my training plan and when I don't feel like getting up extra early in the morning to do it, it reminds me of my GOALS! + I signed up for a few races coming in fall - so can't skip on the summer training!

I also see a few people hiding from the humidity at the mall - in my community we even have a mall walking club!

I need some suggestions for staying on track in the heat and humidity, 'cause I've gone out to run a couple times only to fade out, beet red and overheating in the first mile. I cannot seem to maintain a healthy body temperature when the humidity is over 97 or 98% and that's been every day for the past two weeks!

I am keep the same sleep schedule that I have during the school year. I am hoping it helps me ease back into the school year when we start up again in a few weeks:)

I have recently changed my workouts:) I added swimming. I also started eating a more Paleo type meal plan. I still use my protein powder because I love muffins and pancakes:) I use it as a replacement for flour.

I pretty much keep the same schedule year round. I will take my runs inside if it's too hot.

If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham

Summer is almost here... with the new seasons, perhaps you set new goals... or you make changes to your fitness routine to cope with the warm weather! Some of us might take a time off from work... how do you keep going?

Share your Summer routine with us ... your tips to overcome the excuses (when it is "too hot") and to reach your goals...

Happy going!
