Continuing to Run in the Heat

1250 miles on the Nike plus site since I started April 21, 2010

I am continuing to run nearly every day.  Most of my runs have been between 4 and 6 miles.  I am having difficulty adjusting to the hot, humid weather.  Yesterday my four mile run felt like eight.  I find a mix of water and lemon/lime Gatorade seems to help keep me hydrated.  I have mixed in some Kayak workouts before my runs which helps to strengthen my upper body.  I did manage to put in a thirteen mile run two weekends ago when the weather was cooler.
The Nike + GPS is great, I love being able to go back and look at the mapped runs.  They show mile markers and fastest/slowest sections of each run.
