Heat training continues.

So far, so good. Left around 10am (82 degrees, about 50% humidity, so not bad--I think I prefer mid-morning because while the temps may be a bit higher, the humidity is lower) and felt great. Did a two mile warm-up, a mile at tempo (7:49--woo hoo!) and three mile cool down. Want to incorporate more speed into my workouts this summer, since I don't plan on running much in the way of distance, but have a number of races planned (1 mile to 10K distance). I figure the best way to plan for heat, hills and humidity is to run in them--tempo included. This was just a way to ease into it. More intervals this week, and probably 1.5-2 miles of tempo next week. I figure I don't need to work up to more than 4 or 5 given my race schedule.

Very pleased and ready to put the bad half behind me and move on with my summer races.

    We'll see, Steve. I had a great June last year, then got sick, then injured, so hoping this year is better for me!

    Great job on the heat training! Agree warmer and less humidity is more bearable than the reverse!

    I agree: There's no substitute for training in the conditions you plan on racing in. Got job getting a headstart on that!

    Heat training is mostly a happy accident--as in, I don't get up most days before 8am, so I'm forced to run in it!!

    Great plan and outlook. I am in about the same boat ....realizing it at FL: the 70.3 puts you at running from 11-1 or so. Best way to get used to it is to tin in it. Nice job

    Great plan! I like mid-morning runs too, but mostly because I refuse to set an alarm to wake up on most weekends.
