I am dreading heat

Oh dear. We're approaching the warmer season!

Today is the first time I came back from my run sweaty and with my head lit like a red light. I was dressed too warmly but at one point it will get hot whatever I wear. I am dreading running when it gets warmer.

How do you cope?

heat? In Switzerland In february? Say it isn't so!!

I am dreading it too of course, but right now I am dreading going outside for my walk because it's nasty, windy, rainy and cold.

I dunno, I'm dreading this too! I started running in <50degree weather and I like running in the cold! It is very refreshing!

SO not looking forward to humid mid-atlantic summers... but I will probably end up rocking the sports bra/shorts thing since my newfound abs are no longer an embaressment to me...

k.

Yeah, yeah nice try.



It's not HOT yet but today was about 15°C at lunchtime, in the sun.

I did not run at all the previous 2 summers because it was too bloody hot. I can do with about 20 degrees, then I blow up.

Last year we escaped the heat the day of the local tri, but this year I am in it....

*ping*Idea*

of course my regular route goes along the river, so I'll just hop in it in the end. Can I call my invention "reverse tri brick"?

During a cold weather run I'll be progressively unzipping. When it's warmer out I'll be shedding hat and gloves as necessary and even pulling off a jersey or jacket. Even when it's 18 degrees out I come back from my run sweaty and need to peel off everything as soon as possible. About the best temp for running I've seen so far is around 55 or 60 degrees, warm enough for shorts and just a short sleeve top but cool enough to not overheat.

It's going to be a whole new thing for me to run during the spring and summer. Luckily I do most of my running at 6am when it's still cool.

I live on the SC coast where humidity just makes the heat even more fun! When it really starts to get bad, we just move the runs to pre-dawn. The more I can get done before the sun comes up, the better. It's better than the treadmill and the afternoon nap is even more appreciated!
