Hey Shawshank

Everyones different. Some people love training in heat. Harder w/o's, gets your body used to working in different extremes of temp etc.

Basically, you run in whatever temp you are comfortable with, and can 'safely' handle. I'm not a fan of pouring rain, yet I can look out onto my road on a given rain day and see one or two runners.

Ill still run on a rain day. I'll just do it at the gym generally. Although I Have been caught in the rain :mrgreen:

I don't mind the extremes myself. I prefer to run in the rain, so long as I don't start in the rain. When I compete in jiu jitsu, it allows me to look at my opponent and think that he is not willing to I to the same lengths that I am.

With that said, I have run in -20 and beyond. Currently it is 28 plus humidity and I am in my driveway doing shoulders. Was just curious as to how others felt.

I still run in this heat -- just a bit shorter, and a lot slower. Stay hydrated, my friend.

Another thing for me, in the summer. I either run earlier mornings (always done by 10), or evenings after 8. The only time I run 'during' real heat is if I'm at a race.

Last year I did the Terry Fox 10k at one in the afternoon :dubious: It was hot! And hilly. But the complimentary tan was a nice bonus. :angel:

In other words, by choice, I like to be cooler, but if I sign up for something, the weather wouldn't keep me away.

Right now, those options are not available to me. I work at 04:15. I am not getting up before then and I try not to stay up past 8pm, unless I am at jiu jitsu. Starting this weekend, I am getting ready for a 10k. I worry more about my dog than I do in this heat. I can deal with my own problems, she can't.

Also, found out the weights to be used in the 1st Cantley Strongman.

Frame carry = 500lbs
Super yoke = 600lbs
Stone over bar = 270lbs
Log press for reps (clean/press) = 200lbs 10" diameter log

So I biked at work Monday and Tuesday....yes, the 2 hottest day so far. For fun, I weighed myself at start and end of shift. Even with drinking 6 bottles of water, I still lost 4 pounds in one day. Mac 5-0 weight loss plan....sure to catch on soon. :((

The biking wiped me Monday....40 degree heat w/sun. All I could do was go home, have a cool shower, and relax. I biked quite a bit so I figure I earned it.

Tuesday (June 25th):

Biked at work then did this neat little workout.

5 rounds for time:

10 pullups
10 pushups
10 squats
10 curlups

Total time: 10 minutes.

Wednesday (June 26th):

Insanity (The Asylum) "Relief" - 23 minutes

Thursday (June 27th):

100 squats (changed these up to KB Goblet squats w/35lb KB)
50 "sit throughs"
30 pullups
30 burpees
1000m row

Total time: 15 minutes. (The weighted squats added 3 minutes to my time...oh well worth it!)

Friday (June 28th):

Insanity "Core Cardio and Balance" - 37 minutes.

As for running in extreme heat....I'll only do trail runs where its covered and cool. I bike in all sorts of temps because I can get air flow going (at work) and when off duty and biking I do trails. I don't risk the heat too often for a run....I'll only do it when its early or later and I have a covered trail. I'm not a fan of humidity.

I know I haven't updated a ton but wanted to share that since November I'm down 23lbs and hovering in the 163-165 range. Nice thing is the belly dropped four and a half inches!

Great work! It's a refreshing feeling to be able to see your genitals again without the strategic use of mirrors.
