There's a common theme in the blogosphere these days: it's gettin' hot! Summer is here in full force this week with consecutive days of record-breaking temperatures over 30C (86F) and a humidex in the upper 30s (upper 90s). We are certainly feeling it here in Southern Ontario and many nearby cities have even issued an Extreme Heat Alert. (My friends to the south can go ahead and laugh now.) "Hot" is definitely a relative term, but this is about as hot as it gets around here.
I may not have chosen the best week to ease back into training. Yesterday's 5K with hubs nearly left me in a steaming heap at the park and this evening's 10K with the group is not looking promising.
True, I could be getting up early to run in the more tolerable pre-dawn temperatures. But I enjoy running with my group on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and part of me thinks I should just suck it up and get used to it.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate... is Nuun available via IV??
