Hot. Just hot. Could be worse. It would feel hotter if the humidity was really high but today it's actually way way way low (like 32% according to The Weather Channel as I don't have my own humidity gauge.) Even with low humidity, the 90+ degree temperature was brutal to the max. I think I've got to stop doing these runs. They're uncomfortable, they don't make me feel like I've gotten exercise, they don't leave me feeling good overall. I do love the challenge of running when it's this hot, it makes me feel like I can do anything... but this kind of heat just sucks the life out of me. Today when I got back to my ice water I drank the whole thing down, almost, leaving me just drops for the 12 minute walk back to the house. Not good. Back, showered and once again resting and once again still sweating. Damn, this sucks ass.
And now that running for the month of June is over, I can seriously think about how the hell I'm going to achieve a better time in July. With these temperatures persisting all summer, I'm not sure how I'm gonna do it. We'll see what happens.
