Finally – some heat and humidity training weather in MN

So… forecast calls for highs of low to mid 90’s with dew points in the 70’s. Possible heat index will exceed 100 degrees. Folks in the southern states would laugh watching our TV weather folks… Its like a critical emergency up here!

I don’t happen to like hot humid weather, but I need to get my hydration down pat to prevent cramping problems during RAGBRAI. The hot and humid weather sure makes the muscles loose a mile or so down the road. In weather in the 60’s – 70’s I don’t loosen up until mile 10 or so. In the winter- my muscles really never loosen up.

We here in Houston, Texas got PLENTY of both. We’ll be more than happy to send y’all some to have for your own self. But you can keep February.

I suppose you may need a jacket and warm sleeping bag for the weather in southern IA in a few weeks. Haha Long range forecast calls for mid 90’s (more than likely high humidity) with all of that corn.

I’m just searching out some hills in Mpls, 30 mile training run with 1800′ of elevation change.

I’ll be ready.
