Mississippi Heat

Its been pretty hot a humid here, and if its not hot its raining. And its always humid. Houston and I check the humidity index and if it is somewere in the 90% range than its ok to do a workout. FABULOUS. Anyways, it takes a few weeks to get used to, wether you go out for 20 minutes or 2 hours you come back supping wet, your hair all in knots (if you have long hair) anything cotton gets stretched out to a size XL, and cold showers become the norm.
Training has been going ok, not much work and no classes so basically my day consists of running, half day of work, and a visit to the chiro. Oh and if I can make myself go, a weight session or an evening run (the weight session I dont care for to much). And a large amount of sleep....
