Today's run was 80+ degrees, 70% humidity, and 70+ dew point (at 6:30 am, no less). I don't know if I've ever been sweatier. I definitely didn't get any wetter by jumping in the pool afterward.
Wait, I thought you were in the desert in AZ? Those numbers seem off.

For Arizona, I mean. Your humidity is too low for Houston.
Monsoon season.
I always remember that as starting in August when I lived in El Paso. I didn't realize/remember it started this early. YLSNED.

I managed to run 13.1 miles this morning in 1:44 (just a tiny bit under 8 minutes per mile). Not bad for being 210 pounds.

I have been doing these pushups when I go to the gym. (/brag Just don't ask me how many times a week I go...) Hopefully image loads for other people.

This the genteel version, with just a little carpet foreplay.

My elbows have been twinging a little bit lately, so I wanted to lay off anything that might put a lot of stress on them, but I still wanted to do something that would use my upper body and core, so I tried Zercher lunges. Holy crap are my legs sore now.

(I did not drop the barbell like a musclehead dudebro, though)

I just found out I can rent a fat bike for $10/day at the campus rec center. I don't even know what you use a fat bike for, but I want to rent it because it sounds cool :lol:

Looks like an excellent choice if you're going trail riding. I would say riding a fat bike around on city streets is strictly a hipster thing. Though once the snow flies, a fat bike might be just the thing.

They're popular here as winter city bikes for riding around town in the snow, amongst masochists.

That actually sounds neat, if I had a handy forest trail to ride.
