I remember just a few months ago when we were experiencing conditions like the one below. I was begging for the Winter to end. No more snow, no more freezing temperatures. I promised that if Summer would just come I wouldn't complain one time. Bring on the HEAT..........Famous last words.
While I'm not dreaming of snow...I would love to have some cooler temperatures. It is so HOT. You can't go outside anytime of day and get a break from the heat. I will run tomorrow morning and it will actually a bit cooler than it has been. The "feels like temperature" at 5am tomorrow will only be in the low 80s and the actual temperature will only be about 75. Gee, a cool front. Most mornings lately it has been between 78-82 degrees with humidity around 80-90% and feels like temps in the 90s. To show just how humid it has been, Jim took a picture of our kitchen windows the other morning. This picture was taken about 5 am. You couldn't see through any of the windows.
When I looked back through my runs in the May - June time frame I was doing my long runs a minute to a minute and half faster. I was averaging about an 11:30-11:45 minute mile. Now I am averaging anywhere from 12:30-13:30...which is slow for even me. What the heck? It sucks!
7 miles tomorrow in this heat; and then a 50 mile bike ride on Sunday. It's supposed to be the hottest day of the week. Yea! Something to look forward to.
On another note. The hubs (Jim at 50after40) will complete his 12th marathon on Sunday!! Good luck baby!! You will ROCK it as usual!
