    Wow …. I haven’t been on my bike in months, being a fair-weather rider. This summer was hot here and then life got in the way. So now that the temps are FAB U LOUS, I have no excuses other than my husband, aka biking partner and caretaker, has yet to lower our bikes from the ceiling of the garage and pump the tires. Any day now…

      I am definitely a fair weather biker too. I am much more apt to bike in hot weather than rain, though. So soon I won’t be able to ride much….

    Heat saps energy from me like crazy. I sweat profusely and get dehydrated.
    I don’t mind biking in the cold so much. I will bike until the temps dip below freezing, then I am done.

      Yes, I can’t say that I was super energetic on my ride yesterday in 93 degrees…Maybe that’s why I crashed when I was done. Not enough water.

    Extreme weather definitely alters my workouts! If it’s going to be really hot, I try to go as early as possible. I started doing my long runs at 6am on Saturdays, some as early as 5am – yuck! The one thing is, it’s REALLY nice to be done so early in the morning, but getting up early is not that fun. =)

      Getting up that early is hard. It is nice to have the workout done but then I’m dragging butt all day long.

    Strangely enough – I dont really mind training in hot weather. But it is COLD weather that really gets to me πŸ™

      I think I’m with you–I’d rather bike in hot weather than cold.

    That hot 25 mile trek will go far in keeping you a hot 31 year old, too.

    In Central Florida it is excessively hot 7 months of the year. I work out in doors, in Air conditioning for a good portion of it. Of course in the winter when it goes go into the 20’s and 30’s I will still whine. Maybe I should move to where it is perpetually 60-s and 70’s all year round.

      I know us Northwesters have nothing to complain about compared to you guys! I can’t imagine what it’s like having to workout out in the heat and humidity for so long out of the year.

      1. jane Cartelli

        You are very generous. Many people north and north west beat me up for complaining when they live in cold, snow, ice and darkness for so much of the year.

        I hate either extremes – too humid, too hot, too wet, too cold.

        I am a big baby. πŸ™

          Us Oregonians and Seattleites can complain about the weather better than anyone. If it’s summer it’s too hot, then Fall/Winter comes and we complain about the rain. πŸ˜‰

          I don’t like extremes either. It’s usually fairly mild here.

    living in TX I find Im so much more sedentary in the summer and moooove a lot in the winter.

    COMPLETE SHIFT from my east coast days.

      It’s funny how things change. I’m glad we are adaptable as humans. πŸ™‚ I think it would be a weird adjustment if I moved somewhere that was hot more days out of the year but I’d get used to it eventually.
