Is it cliche to blame the weather? I live in Texas, but it still doesn't make it any easier to run in the summers. The hottest time of day is when I get home, so I certainly don't want to run outside in the summer. It's not just the summer though. This was 3 days before the official day of Fall:
The cold front finally came through this weekend, but no outside running either because it was 99% humidity, and a downpour. It's definitely a struggle to run outside in Texas because there's a very small window in spring and fall before summer or winter comes in. It's why I love being outside when I travel elsewhere. Even DC didn't feel bad compared to Dallas summers, and it was a lot of fun being at a baseball game, and walking to the zoo.
Now that it's finally feeling like fall, I hope this weekend will be more favorable to run. I'm still doing maintenance with strength training, and I see my chiropractor tomorrow. Last time I saw him, my low back and hip flexors were tight. How did I manage that?
