And now for something completely different

Posted: Updated:

There's a pretty major change forecast for San Diego's weather, and it will impact your training walks over the next week - and possibly beyond. It's expected to start showing up Saturday sometime, and this is the kind of weather that we haven't seen in a very long time. I don't think we even had much of it, if any, during last year's summer and training period for the 3-Day.

High pressure is scheduled to set up in the Four Corners region of the Southwest this weekend. That high, with its clockwise circulation, tends to bring up moisture from the tropics. That moisture is experienced by YOU as oppressive humidity - the kind of monsoonal stuff we normally have in August and early September. Besides the fact that this is happening much earlier this year, and over a long holiday weekend, there's also Tropical Storm Arlene on the eastern coast of Mexico - and some of THAT moisture may be transported all the way to your training walk next week.

This is the kind of training weather we largely avoided last year; be sure to take extra precautions on training walks this weekend (and beyond, for now). Extra breaks, extra hydration, smaller more frequent meals, etc. Listen to your body! There's no reason you can't safely do long walks in this kind of weather, but you'll have to be more careful.

When I was training last year for my first 3-Day, I felt very, very fortunate not to have any of this kind of humidity!! That, apparently, is over, as THIS year it looks to be a much more "normal" summer for San Diego. (And actually, that's a good thing.)
