It is noon and I'm wearing my fourth outfit of the day (fifth if you count swimsuit). I hate humidity!

1 hour run this morning that was more of a slog fest than anything else. It was just gross and I wasn't fast and just ugh!! After that I had to run over to my research facility and mow the grass before it got ridiculously hot. The joy there is that I have to wear long pants, boot, and long sleeves to protect against snakes, ticks, and poison ivy. Next was the gym for some weight lifting, followed by a short 1400yd swim. Yep, four outfits by noon.

Anyone racing this weekend?!?!

Now THAT is a morning. :-)No racing for me, obviously, but I'm shooting for 40+ miles on the bike Saturday and walking/hiking 6 miles on Sunday.

Looking down the barrel of a four hour brick. Just waiting for the sun to fully rise to head out before we start to bake, or maybe it is baste with the projected humidity. What's everyone have on tap for today?

Planned day off for me - my first in two weeks.  I'm traveling back home from CT later today.  

It's even hot here, for goodness' sake.  97 and humid in B-more today and this weekend.  I'd better get riding early.

3:15 bike followed by 30' brick run. By the time I got to the run it was 98F. Needless to say, it sucked! Bike wasn't bad until last half hour when my saddle just didn't seem comfortable anymore! I followed it up with my first ever ice bath!! It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but I don't think I had enough ice to really get the water temp down enough. My thermometer said it was 65F. I'm giving ice baths a shot, even though the research is inconclusive. I've noticed my legs feel a lot better if I can get to the pool after a log bike or run, so this is just a more extreme version of that.
