WoW: heat acclimation

I hate to agree with this, but it does help to think like that. Especially since NYC is up to it's second official heatwave of the season (3 if you count the one in May!) and it won't be letting up until Friday according to the weathermen. I still have another month and a half of summer training; gotta think positively!

Would you rather train in the summer or winter?

    1. I wish! haha. But in order to get to the great season, you have to deal with the other two. Boo.

  2. I rationalize it by saying that each run in the heat is double that of a workout in the cold. And my best race results have come in early fall after a solid summer of training in Southern heat. It'll pay off in the end.

    1. I totally agree with Fred. I think I PR'd at DL Half last year bc I was training all summer in Phoenix, then went to Anaheim, where it's 20-25 degrees cooler in the summer.
