        I started a long run at 9:30 today.

         

        By mile 12 it was a little too hot and by the end of mile 17 when I got back to my car, I was ready to wrap it up for sure.

         

        That's what I get for staying up too late having a few cold beers.......

          It's like nature giving you a big wet and warm hug.

            I could think of a few more appropriate words to replace "hug",

            but none fit to post here. ;D

              I live in the Houston area and I know heat and humidity. It sucks. But embrace it and continue to train. When the first cold front comes through, you'll be able to run harder/faster with the same effort. This prepares me for the fall season. Some skip training in the summer or move indoors. I prefer to run during my lunch break. It's hot but my body gets acclimated with no issues if I start in the spring.

               

                I just think of it like altitude training without the benefits.

                  I agree.  Ugh.

                   

                  I hate hugs, so a dewpoint of 78 better not continue to hug me.

                    It was just a few months ago my training was getting befriggered by this crap:

                     

                     

                    So I'm trying not to piss and moan too much about the heat and humidity.

                    Runners run.

                      I would run in freezing weather any day instead of heat and humidity.

                       

                      I did an 8K today and the humidity felt like water torture.  --I keep pushing it, but I can't acclimate to it no matter how hard I try.  I'll keep putting in the miles this summer, but I am anxiously awaiting the fall...

                        You can acclimate to heat but there is no acclimating to dewpoint, so your body will always struggle to cool itself in that high humidity.

                          I can deal with heat,cold,whatever.  I CANNOT FRIGGIN STAND the biting flies.  I run in the woods in upstate NY, and the black flies and deer flies are maddening.  I drenched myself in Deep Woods Off, and the black flies were still swarming around my face, it is hard to not accidentally breathe one in.  And it sucks to get one stuck in your eye.  And at least one deer flies finds its way to an unsprayed tender spot.  I am considering running with a mosquito net, but it would be hard to drink.

                          I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.  

                           

                          "Mental toughness is built by doing something that is hard over and over again, especially when you don't feel like doing it. Our society has conditioned us to believe that there should be no discomfort, to stop when we are uncomfortable. But the discomfort we feel when we're doing a challenging workout is an important part of the strengthening process." -Jim Afremow, The Champion's Mind: How Great Athletes Think, Train, and Thrive

                            Deer flies are the worst. They will harass for miles on end. Perhaps this might help, one runner's deer fly experiment.

                             

                            I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...

                                I love heat and humidity and would rather live in Death Valley than this cold, fu-ked up hell hole.
