Getting used to the heat

Man would I love to say that I’m a hot weather kind of guy.  I hear people that I run with talk about how they love the heat and running in hot weather.  I don’t get it.  When is fall?  Can I have snow?  My name is Frosty and I’M MELTING!!!

Today at 5:30am it was 77 degrees and was over 80 by the time we got done.  I know this doesn’t sound bad, and actually it really isn’t, but it was enough when the humidity was added in.  I wilted on the first hill and it didn’t get any better.  I entertained myself by becoming a sprinkler seeking missile and even going so far as to zig zag back and forth across busy roads just to find some relief (ok… not really… but I thought about it).  This, of course, cooled me off but had the adverse effect of filling my shoes with water and subsequently giving me blisters.

I’m afraid the only way to get used to this heat is to just get out and run in it more.  I’m thinking I might have to start doing a small lunchtime run (1-2 mi) just to be out in the thick of it.  Hopefully it will start to make the morning runs seem cooler!
