High Temps Vs. High Humidity
I'm usually a morning runner, but Saturday night I ran 6.6 miles when it was 95 degrees (with lower humidity than earlier). I wanted to see if running later in the day was easier than running on a humid morning. I sweat and drank less than usual, but after only one try, I'm not sure which is less difficult. My pace was about the same Saturday and today.
This morning I ran 8 miles in high humidity (90%) and 80* (maybe). I ran up a couple of hills (need hill info?) and did a few strides - the goal was to speed up towards the end on all of those. Hopefully, the next time I do these, I can increase the reps and the speed at the end, too.
Before Saturday's and today's run, I did some strength training using Sculpt Your Arms and Core Exercises. At least the heat can't keep me from a good, hard workout inside!
