I head for shaded areas and either go out early or in the evening

4 Noble Truths

1. Suffering is a part of life
2. Suffering is caused by our attachments and avoidances.
3. Suffering can be ended.
4. Freedom from suffering is possible by following the Eightfold path.

Bigotry disguised as morality is still bigotry just as an outhouse with
marble columns is still an outhouse.

I hear you, it really does drain the life out of you.

Do you have access to a treadmill? That's what I always resort to.

On those humid days I quit keeping time, enjoy my run(and walk) and think of those nasty winter days when I say to myself, "Summer can't come soon enough!"

Earlier this week, I ran what was to be a Tempo run but the conditions were very heavy with heat and humidity. I automatically slowed my pacing down and changed up my run/walk interval ratio. That helped alot but it still was an energy zapper for sure. Good for you for reading your body!!!

I agree with Nancy. Slow down your pace. Where I live, the humidity drops as the day goes on (I know, lucky me) so sometimes I choose to run later when the temperature is higher, but the humidity is lower. Mostly I am just looking forward to fall!

Trying to stay fit, healthy, happy, and motivated

Deann,

Precisely what you did...listen to your body and know that you are still getting the benefits of your training even if you have to slow your pace or add more walk breaks into your training.

HAPPY SPARK RUNNING!
Nancy

This morning I headed out for a run and within minutes I I felt my energy draining because of the high humidity. I switched to a run/walk instead. What are your techniques for running on high humidity days?
