It's definitely July, the heat has been turned up. Whereas, I had to deal with the heat in South Dakota last weekend, I seem even more sensitive to it now in Iowa. The past couple days have not felt very good as soon as I hit the road. The shade and trees help once we reach Lime Creek but I still feel extra pressure and flushed in the face.
The workouts are still just easy efforts and I don't intend to start more earnest training until next week. The opportunity to race again as soon as I hit 60 is tempting and I need to check into some races after the 15th. But another concern, I have committed to riding several days of RAGBRAI with my son's team so I should get a few more bike miles in before the last week of July.
4 miles in the AM and a hike at dusk planned unless it stays too hot.
