The Devil's Drawers
Let's take a moment to appreciate the number you see above. I've been to both the Australian Outback and the American Southwest, and I expect to see this number in those locations. But here in South Jersey?
Cely over at Running off the Reese's, who lives in Texas, a part of the country that could be described as hotter than the devil's drawers, has an interesting take on how to run in the heat: don't. Moving to a new latitude or giving up running for the summer seem to be the best options.
I seem to have subconsciously taken her advice and, between class at LaSalle this week and the intense heat wave New Jersey is experiencing, have done very little running lately.
I'm not particularly worried given that I'm not actively training for anything at the moment, but it can still be disheartening to realize how quickly fitness levels can deteriorate if training isn't kept up.
