I swear, the only relief us South Texans get from the heat comes in the form of merciful “coldfronts.” I think that’s what our winters are made of – a series of fronts strung together to keep the temperatures “fall-like” or “winter-like.” This morning the temperature was 81 degrees, and the humidity was 90%. Miserable. The trails were a ghost town. I decided to go long anyway. I was shooting for 6 miles.
I was soaked with sweat right away, but at least there was a breeze. And then at mile 4 – drizzle! The rain was glorious. I stretched my arms out and closed my eyes for a second, taking it all in. I could feel the temperature dropping a little. The last 2 miles were easy.
It felt fantastic to reach 6 miles for the second time in my training. My 10k is 4 weeks away and if the humidity is anything less than 90%, I will be a happy
I’m dying to know – How is the weather in your area??
