Training Tuesday....Hot Hot Hot!

Today I had a scheduled tempo run of 4 miles and I knew when I took the dog out at 5:45 am that it was going to be a tough day to run.  So, I laced up my shoes after having a banana and Gatorade to attempt to deal with the heat (78 degrees) and high humidity (82 percent).  Knowing my pace would be slower, I warmed up with a mile at 10:20 and knew that it would be a big struggle to hit close to my goal pace for the next 3.  With optimal conditions, my tempo should have been at 8:29.  Today I managed 9:00 and was thrilled that I finished.  As soon as I got home I jumped in here:

 How do you stay cool in this heat?
