For those of my fellow peeps on the Cape (and many other areas I’m sure!), this humidity is absolutely killing my running mojo. The other day I headed out for my morning 3-miler and it was 99% humidity. It’s just hard to psych yourself up for that plus heat!
Yesterday I had six miles on the schedule and couldn’t get out in the morning. I checked the weather conditions and it was about 85% humidity and 84. Understandably, I wasn’t too thrilled about running outside.
Instead, I opted to head over to my nice well-air conditioned gym. I think it was the better choice! I had just had two many days of running in soup and too late of a start.
I did catch my ospreys again the other day in the morning. See picture below:
Since I knew it would be another hot one today, we headed to the beach early in the morning for some play time in the sand and water. I feel so blessed to live right down the street from such a beautiful spot.
The kids are adjusting SO well to life here on the Cape and being able to be outside in their yard or at the beach all the time. I took today as an off day, so I will be up super duper early tomorrow to get my run on.
How have you been coping with the heat and humidity on the run?
