Sadly, running has been at the bottom of my priority list for the past month. It's been at the forefront of my mind, as in I know I really NEED to run, but it just hasn't happened. Now that I'm all moved and mostly unpacked and settled in, I have the time and energy to hit the pavement.
Friday was my first time running since moving to Dallas. It actually wasn't my first time running here in general because I did a nice 3 mile run with my husband when I came to visit back in April. Last time wasn't so bad. The weather was in the 70s when we ran, but I remember the humidity. This time was a whole other story.
That "feels like" 99 degrees was no joke. It was mostly the humidity that slowed me down. I'm used to a cold crisp ocean breeze instead of the thick hot air. It was nice to not be freezing, but I can tell it's going to take a while to adjust to this heat.
It was a beautiful run and my slow pace gave me ample time to enjoy the view. A nice perk- I figured out that one loop around the lakes/ponds is one mile. There's a longer loop around some of the apartment complex that's three miles.
We have about 21 weeks until the WDW Marathon (eeekk!), so this week I really need to set up a training plan!
Do you have any tricks or tips to adapting to running in warmer weather?
