It went from cool rainy spring to HOT summer overnight. I am not complaining too much because we needed the wet spring to help with the drought conditions and now we can enjoy all the summer activities. We have been to the pool the last two days and are loving it!
We have also enjoyed meals on the deck and playing in the yard.
I am NOT used to the heat, and have embraced the fact that I just HATE running in the heat. I love running but if it’s too hot I get sick and it ruins my energy for the rest of the day. My solution to surviving summer heat is to avoid it. I get up early if I want to run outside, or I take to the treadmill. If I do end up running outside when it’s hot (rare) I try to wear light clothing and bring ice water with me. I also try to avoid racing in the summer so there is no need for me to acclimate.
