Humid Run and Some Like it Hot.

After sleeping in a bit this morning (which was heavenly – hey, a girl needs her beauty rest) I was out of bed around 7:45 for a quick and easy run before things get a little crazy….work all day then teaching a class tonight. 4 mile jaunt in the ‘hood sporting my new Boston tee.

About 80 percent humidity but with little bit of a breeze. I will take it because I am bracing myself for triple digit temps this summer. Training for marathons in this TX heat is no joke.
The next couple of days is looking like a sauna too…hopefully the sun will come out and allow me time to kick it by the pool. I am hopeful.

Breakfast post run…my favorite Clif bar and a banana.

I had very little time after doing some yoga stretching but I threw together a spinach salad for lunch…with red pepper flakes to spice it up. Not sure what’s with me and spiciness lately. I love to make it hot.

Do you like it hot? If so what’s your favorite kind of spice to put on your food?
What’s your favorite kind of running weather?

  1. I like my food hot, but not the weather. I am pretty glad to be away from the humidity we had in NYC – training for the marathon last summer was no bueno there either!
    It gets hot in CO, but almost no humidity, so doesn’t feel too bad!

    1. Oh yeah! Thankfully I have been training in the summer heat for marathons for over 4 years so after a while you get acclimated to it! It’s not easy though! I always say it’s just an opportunity to work on my tan 😉

  2. Florida is being so weird weather-wise, as usual. We’ve had mornings in the 60s and afternoons in the 90s. I like it hot, temperature and weather-wise. 😛 I don’t like it hot for spiciness, though.

  3. Girl, I can’t stand running in the hot, humid weather. My pace is soooooooo slow. Your pace looks pretty good still with the humidity. I am sure I’ll be double slow soon as summer temps hit (though I was told I’m not allowed to run in heatwave weather…). Oh well. If that’s the case, I’ll take it on the ‘mill.

    Great run and have a great spin class tonight.

    1. Thanks! Yeah you get used to it after running in the heat/humidity…I’m sure running in different parts of the US you have to make adjustments for the altitude and etc. I don’t mind it and when the weather gets cooler or if you travel up north for a fall marathon it just makes you that much stronger to kick things up and run faster!

  4. You know I love spice 🙂 Red pepper flakes are one of my favorite seasonings. I get a little too crazy with my spice flavor sometimes. The other day, I added habanero and cayenne to a salad, which was a terrible idea! Oops! Haha Enjoy your Thursday!

    1. haha I can imagine that was quite the party in your mouth! I got too happy and put a little too much red pepper on my salad yesterday and I had to run to the bathroom with my water jug because I was coughing so much!

  5. Ugh. I loathe running in the heat and humidity. It doesn’t usually get hot until late afternoon this time of year, but it’s still in the 70s some mornings! I like it nice and cool, like mid 50s.

  6. I’m not a big fan of hot. My favorite running weather is spring & fall. It’s not too hot, not too cold. In Utah we get hot temps too and you have to learn to either run in the morning or late & night or figure out a way to take LOTS of water on your run with you so you can dump it over your head as well as drink it. As for my favorite spice? I LOVE buffalo sauce. It tastes good on everything!!!

    1. Oh I love buffalo sauce too! Yep when summer comes we start our marathon training runs Saturday mornings around 5:30 am! It’s nice getting done just as the sun is coming up but still warm! TX summers are no joke!

  7. Oh man, I LOVE spicy ANYTHING! My hubby is a huge baby when it comes to spices (He seriously can’t even handle mild salsa), but I love it all! The more it burns my nostrils, the better! 🙂

    I ran 4 miles yesterday, too! We had a storm in the early morning, so things were cooled down rather nicely before I hit the trail after work. It was breezy, kinda-sorta cool–perfect for a tempo run!

      1. seriously?? now i have no excuse to skip my run tomorrow morning b/c of a little DC rain. you texans are hard core =P
