I guess the heat just doesn't bother me much.
I had to do some errands around NYC on my bike. Rode only about 35 miles. When I got home about 4:30PM. I checked weather.com and it recorded 100 degrees and 46 % humidity. I was very surprised cause it felt more like only 85 - 90. Riding in the thick of traffic with hot cars and buses will add another 5 to 10 degrees to my personal discomfort. Don't get me wrong I prefer 75 over 100 anytime but I can tolerate higher and lower temps on my bike.

I think I might be ready for Tucson.

When I lived in Tucson, I'd jog well in to the 90s, 100 being my absolute limit. I carried a camelback belt hydration system and downed 20 oz before, 45 oz during a typical 3-4 mile job. I'd wait til the sun was almost down, or almost up.

The safety side is not trivial. People really do die out there by pushing it. The best thing I found was a pulse meter. No matter how slow I had to go -- even walking if necessary rather than jogging -- I never let it stay above my target range of about 80-85% predicted max. Since heat exhaution will speed your pulse considerably, this was a nice double-check.

Re: It's so hot...

The outdoor pool water here in N. Virginia was over 90 degrees this morning so I swam my laps in the indoor pool which was only 82 degrees. I will do my 3 mile walk very early tomorrow morning as the heat index is predicted to reach 110+.

Re: It's so hot...

I've never heard of this "heat index" you guys are talking about. Hot-weather equivalent of the wind-chill factor, I assume?

Re: It's so hot...

DW and I do our 4 mile walks we carry 2 24oz water bottle each. Makes walking in the heat much more enjoyable. I try to avoid 100 plus days though*


I believe thats what the head index is like the cold factor. IE if its breezy and its 100 out it feels like 96. I could be wrong though. Humidity is probably figured in too.

bpp,

That's right.

Maybe you don't know about the dew point either. The warmer the air the more moisture it can hold. The dew point is the temperature at which the current level of moisture in the air will begin to precipitate as dew. Any dew point over 70 is considered oppressive. Here in the D.C. area yesterday dew points were as high as 78.
