Friday: Off Saturday: 18.5 mile mtb ride. My longest since surgery, and I included one of the harder trails. I only stopped once to catch my breath at the top of a steep hill.
Sunday: 33 mile group gravel ride
I am ok up til about 85 degrees or a bit more without humidity. Of course, the humidity on Georgia is off the charts. I drink more, try to ride early (sometimes we are out at 7:30-8:00), take electrolytes, and then try to stay out of the heat the rest of the day. Some days I'll adjust my workout if it's above 90. The honest answer is you do get used to it after a few weeks, and your body adapts.
Friday-10 mile bike ride Saturday-weights workout Sunday-20 mile skate with friends
QOTW-I live in Tucson, AZ so it's just a fact of life for much of the year. Soon our overnight lows will be in the low 80s, and I'll have to be up and out at 1st light (430ish) to get it in before it gets too hot. It sucks, but I'd rather do that than not do it at all. I also pay extra attention to hydration and fueling, both of which I'm pretty breezy about otherwise.
It was 59 degrees this morning, which is freakishly cold for us for this time of year. I had to wear a jacket! It was delightful!
Fri - swam 130 laps in 60 mins Sat - off Sun - biked 6.5 mi w/ DD1, later ran 4 mi
QOTW: Well, yesterday I tried to hit the pool to avoid the run in 88 degrees, but the pool was packed, so I sucked it up and ran. I definitely try doing stuff earlier in the day if I can help it. That helps with better temps and also I don’t feel like I have a workout hanging over me all day so I feel better getting it done early.
?: Ugh, my body has definitely acclimatized to MN and forgotten the TX heat and humidity. My long run on Saturday was MISERABLE due to the h&h, and comparatively it wasn’t even bad. But I try to get out earlier in the morning, definitely bring water if it’s above 5 miles, and find someplace with shade. And although it’s more related to the sun, sunscreen and hats!
