Or is it just me?
The time of day I workout tends to vary... it can be first thing in the morning, middle of the afternoon or late evening.
Today at 1PM I went outside for a 4-mile run.
It was a balmy 75 degrees.
But I swear, it felt like I was slow-roasting out there!
The first mile passed with very little problem. But as my run went on, I kept getting hotter and more tired. I almost gave up at mile 2... I was wiped out completely. However, I have the "stubborn" gene, so I kept trodding on.
By the end of my run I felt very weak and almost sick. I've never been able to handle the heat... my body just doesn't adjust to it. And the humidity... oh, the humidity!
I realize that I sound like a total weenie. In some places it's already 90+ degrees outside! My hat's off to you folks who exercise in super hot, super humid weather. (It's a sweaty hat, but it's off to you.)
Unless things cool down, this will probably be my last afternoon run until Autumn.
But I'm at least patting myself on the back for sticking to it and finishing out the run, no matter how much I felt like quitting.
