Well friends its officially summer time in Chicago! It’s currently 96 degrees and it is supposed to be equally as hot tomorrow. So this brings me to the debate..to run inside or outside in the crazy heat?
All winter I begged for summer to come. I couldn’t wait to not have to bundle up and find my gloves and hat before every run. Since Chicago apparently didn’t believe in having a spring it has gone from freezing to steaming in a matter of a few weeks.
I was all geared up to run outside today but after checking the weather report I thought I might actually melt if I tried to run inside. It was so hard for me to run on the treadmill when it was so sunny outside but I thought it was for the best to not go brave the heat at 4 pm.
So my question to you blog readers..how hot is too hot to run outside? I know I can get up super early to run before the heat or wait until later at night. Most the time I like to work out in the middle of the afternoon though so I am thinking I will just get used to running when its hot.
How hot is too hot for you?
At what point is it unsafe to run in the heat?
Day 5: 40 min circuit training
Day 6: 4 mile run
