FTW Friday!

My run is winning today!

Right now at 4am it is 82* and the humidity is tangible. I am doing a 10-12 mile run in a little bit.
There is a heat advisory in effect until 8pm tonight as temps will near 100* and the humidity will surely kill us all. I am certainly expecting a stellar run this morning.

Yeah, bringing my new *hydration toy* with me for it's maiden voyage. I think today is a perfect day to try it out. More about this coming up

More Winning!!
Tomorrow is supposed to be cooler-only 95* so I think it's a perfect day for the swim/bike brick scheduled. I wonder if I set my trainer up in the pond or in the ocean if that would count??

I hope that everyone is training safe in this heat-I know MAINE is not the only place where it is hot hot hot.

Isn't it hot like this in Texas and Arizona all the time??? Yikes...

You could win--


or Chasing Atalanta's Allied Steel Giveaway
(but don't enter that-I really really need a medal display!)

Alright-time to go run. Should be interesting.

curious how it went. When we left at 5 am it was 85. We made it 6 miles and decided that our last 10 was going to be on the treadmill. I was wheezing and don't even have asthma. Good luck:)

"Isn't it hot like this in Texas ....?"

Well, the 82 degrees at 4am is right on the mark. Only difference is our temps usually hit 100+ by 3pm. I've seen streaks of 100+ degrees for as many as 45 consecutive days. That's why I finish my workouts by 8am!

It's not the heat, it's the humidity...

It's supposed to be hot like that in Arizona for most of the year. But honestly, I find it totally bearable for more than most of the time everyone is b!^ching about it being too hot.
