What a HOT week! This week we had a heat wave and I cannot remember it ever being this hot. I mean, look at this:
For living in Northeast Ohio, this is HOT. So runs this week were sweaty and mostly done early. We are not used to this! Here is a look at how the week panned out:
Sunday included a stroller run with FW. B and I had stayed out late Saturday and I was TIRED Sunday morning. It took me 2 miles to get in the groove, but once I did, it was fun to be out with FW.
Friday when I woke up, it was already 80 degrees at 5 a.m.! Let’s just say that it was SWEATY.
Here’s to hoping that it cools down a LITTLE bit this week. Heck, running in the 60s will feel chilly at this rate!
Dear weather gods – for the record, I still prefer running in 80 degrees to running in 8 degrees. And a clear sidewalk? So much better than ice. Yup, summer running still beats winter!
Questions for you:
- Did you have a heat wave? How hot is it near you?
- What’s the coldest you run in?
I’m linking up with Deborah and Kim for the Weekly Run Down.

I personally cannot was for the heatwave to break tomorrow. 4 days of oppressive heat is more than enough for me!
I think my earlier comment got eaten LOL Anyways, I agree with you on the heat…I’ll choose excessive sweating over teeth chattering any day! Impressive week for you, especially in the heat!
It gets pretty hot and humid, here in Texas. I think the hottest I’ve ever run in was 100/101. I don’t know how humid it was, though. Needless to say, it was not a super long run! I still prefer that to cold runs, though! I think the coldest I’ve ever done was a 15k this last February in 23ish degree weather. Now, THAT was brutal!
I am so impressed that you got in 5 days of stroller running in this heat. Those miles count double in my book! Thanks for linking up!
Nope, I’ll run in 8 over 80. Or at least 18 for sure. Maybe if we had low humidity and a breeze …. Good job getting those runs in!
you still got a lot of miles in!! Our heatwave is supposed to hit this week, with a high of 38C/ 100F on Thursday. It’s HUMID here too. Dry heat I can take; stifling humid heat is the worst. I can’t really remember the coldest I’ve ever run in. It gets cold here but not cold like I remember from when I lived in Illinois, but I know when I was in Poland a couple of years ago in February it was WAY colder than here in the Netherlands. LOTS of layers for those runs.
8 over 80. I do’t like the ice, but the heat is way more uncomfortable.
Congrats on your mileage in an awful week
