So this Friday Five link up brought to you by You Signed Up for WHAT?!, Eat Pray Run DC (newly married!!!!!) and Mar on the Run! is Five Ways to Beat the Heat. Summer is fast approaching and I know
that after the winter of Polar Vortex conditions we all are trying so hard to NOT complain about how hot it is. This extremely pregnant mama is having a really hard time since the heat, humidity AND this gigantic "speed bump" of a belly has me nothing short of miserable, but I really *am* trying to embrace the heat and enjoy it....
FIVE WAYS TO BEAT THE HEAT
Go Early or Go Late:
The summer sun gets pretty darn intense as soon as it rises and stays that way all day. So go when the sun
has yet to come up or has gone down. These non sun times of day can still have high humidity and high temps but without the blazing sun beating down on you, you will feel cooler. My run affair actually started with hot humid night runs back in August of 2010. The pre dawn hours and post dusk hours can also be super peaceful and reflecting. You are out there as the world is waking up or going to sleep and it's like you are transcending time.
Hydrate WELL and bring water:
Cool off before or during:
Now have some summer running and enjoy this season of running. We all know that once the cold kicks back in we will be back to the complaining... ;) What kinds of tips do you have to avoid being too hot out there?
