Humpday Hotz: What are your limits
It's suppose to be in the high 90s today. Thankful I love my am runs. This morning at 5:30am it was 74 degrees. When I finished by 8 miles it was 75, not bad. I wonder how and why do people run in the middle of the day and its in the high 80s, 90s, with high humidity? I'm not going to "runner shame" but damn. I have my limits. I won't run in 80 degree weather unless its a race and I'm forced to. And I won't run when its 5 degrees or below outside. That is my range.
To get my going this morning, I had on the Hip- Hop Crunk music mix from RockMyRun
The tunes put an extra bounce in my step. The task got done. I was slower than normal and It wasn't pretty but....I ran and I completed my miles. :).
Running in the morning and running in this weather is an option. I feel for the construction workers, landscapers, city workers, etc I see who have to work in unpleasant weather for 8-10 hours a day. Hopefully this heat bubble will pass by Friday as we transition into August.
