I've had to dial back the running the last few weeks. Probably overworked myself after the Vail pass run and ended up with some major soreness and leg pain, not surprising since I'm pushing myself quite a bit. Feeling a lot better now after just dialing it down to a few easier, shorter runs per week and am gonna start ramping it back up with a little more attention paid to stretching and such than I'd been doing. So it goes.

It's supposed to be 87 today. I don't know if I'm going to be able to go running since I'm very sensitive to heat and I don't want to have a stroke. But I'm concerned I'll lose endurance if I skip a day.

A friend of mine moved to DC this year—his wife is in the Canadian foreign service and his posted there; what luck!—and he's massively pissed off that the summers there make it all but impossible for him to bike.

As fanatical as I am about not wanting to take days off, I was mostly good about not cycling outside when it was crazy hot. Did it a couple times and felt nauseous and realized that it's not worth it. Stay inside and do some push-ups and sit-ups and shit.

I think you acclimate. I know running on the occasional hot day here is a real chore, so I can't attest to it much, personally.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I've never acclimated to any hot weather place I've lived in. Ottawa and Greensboro aren't that far off, I've found, and I've never gotten used to the heat or humidity. Cold weather ain't nuthin' at all to me.

Hello,

Acclimatization holds very true. I've trained in a lot of hot places. Additionally, your body will have about 48 hours before you lose some of the catalysts of the processes deteriorate/lessen. The occasional day off shouldn't impact you physiologically. I'm crazy as I let a day off affect me psychologically!

That's entirely it. It just eats me up. Back when I biked outside exclusively, a day of rain would have me fidgety. The good thing about that, tho, is that you need to have that routine, that sense of needing to do this, for it to really make a difference. The bad side is when you're forced to take time off. When my rower broke I was various shades of livid and despondent because I'm a crazy-ass routine person. If I could avoid the violence of prison life, I could adjust really well to it, I'm sure.

Hello,

If I was training for something specific, I would take a regular day off (when I was training for the Grand Canyon, Sunday was my day off). With no reason to achieve a performance, I just keep going. Being diabetic, it helps my sugars but hurts my performance. My legs are always tired. I'm dealing with it.

Hello,

Blood sugar is glucose. When you exercise, glucose is your fuel for higher intensity work (fat is the predominant fuel for lower intensity work). Insulin is the key that unlocks the muscle and lets glucose in to be burned in the transfer of energy from ATP breaking down into ADP. One of the causes of fatigue is glucose depletion. This is why gatorade/powerade/whatever is useful after ~60 minutes of exercise. I have to make sure I don't have too much sugar in my blood (blood gets too thick and doesn't flow quickly or easily) my workouts suck or too little blood sugar (a result of dripping too much insulin in my system) means I get really loopy and lose functionality. It's a balancing act a healthy pancreas (which I'm lacking) handles.

My respect for you and your exercise work (physical and intellectual) just went up a couple notches. Finding balance can be hard enough but then adding the intensity of exercise is a whole 'nother level. But given your profession you're especially in good position to know the ins and outs of your condition with respect to exercise.

Hello,

Yes. I'm using a pump. It's the best treatment I've had. No real issues. I can eat anything - just press a few buttons. It doesn't inhibit me athletically - only age does!!!!

So many of the kids at my son’s school have it it is incredible. I think there were 3 in one basketball team. It certainly doesn’t hold them back.

Hello,

Nope. Kids are resilient! As long as the coach has gatorade or some source of sugar around, no problem!
