Hot summer running
The decision to cancel the 13.1 Chicago race was an appropriate one and might have saved some lives.
As I did last year, I plan to get up around 4 A.M. to go out for my morning run. It is a beautiful sweaty run and has to be done at no more than 80 persent power. The only disadvantage is having to go to bed early at night when it hasn't cooled down properly yet. It takes a while before being able to fall asleep but it feels great to wakeup when it is warm.
Throughout the day I have to keep an eye on my water consumption and the amount of electrolites (from salty food) I get inside me. But I love it, even though it is tough it is way better than winter.
