Working out in high heat and humidity is difficult

Just last month, the outside temperature climbed into the upper nineties.

Every single day is ungodly hot and humid.

I make an effort to get up as early as possible to workout. Even by 7 AM, the temperature is always in the high eighties. I handle my workout in a screened-in lanai, but there isn’t even a hint of a cool breeze. The conditions are terribly hot and sticky. I have invested a powerful electric fan to offer a bit of relief. I set the fan to the highest setting and attempt to position myself directly in front of it. Even with cool air blowing at me, I instantly begin to sweat. I have to keep a towel ready so that I can continually wipe my face. While I usually drink about 16 ounces of water during an hour workout, I’ve recently been drinking a minimum of 32 ounces. If I don’t make a point to drink plenty of water, I end up with a killer headache. However, drinking so much water also makes me feel a bit nauseous. The heat is downright overwhelming. I have a difficult time getting myself motivated. When it’s so hot, I’d prefer to sit on my yoga mat and simply stretch for the whole hour. I force myself to get moving, and the sweat pours off me. My shirt, shorts, underwear and bar are always completely saturated. I normally spend approximately half an hour on high impact aerobics. I jump rope, jog in place, do a bunch of jumping jacks, perform burpees, mountain climbers and squat jumps. During this heatwave, I tend to create a puddle of sweat at my feet. I wish there was some way to have air conditioning in the lanai. I’m just crossing my fingers that the weather cools off soon.
