Holy heatwave, Batman!!!!
Chicago, like a lot of places these past couple of weeks, as been averaging temperatures well into the 90's, with heat the heat index hovering in between 100-115* F. Even in the mornings, it's in surplus of 80* and humidity levels have been 80+%.
So-- runners out there-- at what point to we say IT IS TOO HOT to run?
The past few weeks have been so busy that I've been *trying* to get up early and run/walk before work to make up for some missed workouts in the evenings due to so much stuff going on. But, the past two weeks, I've nixed the outside stuff due to heat. Am I doing the right thing? I see runners outside, looking like they want to die, and I tell myself that I am making the right decision. But then I wonder if I'm just being a pansy.
