OK...running in the heat really stinks!!
Sunday, June 13, 2010
I've been running really regularly and been proud of my increased mileage, etc. But the cool spring we've had has spoiled me. The true SC heat/humidity has finally kicked in and I've been struggling to run the entire time...feel like I'm breathing under water.
I guess it's time to do the most reviled of all my exercise "shoulds". It's time to do what my husband has been nagging me to do for several months: get up in the AM before work to run (double Ugh!). I know if will be great to get my workout out of the way, start my day off right, and leave my afternoons blissfully open to other "shoulds". Not to mention the biggest benefit...maybe I'll run in 85 degree weather instead of blazing hot 99 - 105 :-). I'll make it my goal tomorrow AM. Any tips on how to make my morning self buy into this? She's a completely different individual who obviously does not care about all the above-referenced advantages.
