As we are all still on holiday, we decided to hit the beach - early. We are fortunate enough to have Granny and Grandpa here and are taking complete advantage. The Cyclist and I quickly grabbed the exercise opportunity and got up super early to cycle to the beach while the grandparents organised the kids, fed the dog, made the tea, packed the picnic and drove down......(using a GPS and almost getting lost along the way.)

If you are a real nutter, and training for the Cape Epic, you can even cycle home from the beach - despite the fact that your wife has issued a dire warning, your friends think that your tyres may delaminate and you still have two primary school kids to raise. The Cyclist did indeed cycle home, another 22.8 km (over 400m of elevation) and in 42 degree heat. Have I mentioned that he is crazy? He says the heat is good training.....
Here is the temperature on the way home and it wasn't even afternoon yet:

Ensure your curtains are closed...

and your pot plants have been moved into the shade (if at all possible) - this is a great upper body workout, especially if you first water the pots.

Finally, if you are fortunate enough, turn on the air conditioning and watch a good movie...
Right now our air conditioning does not seem to be coping. I think we are running too many zones. I'll just go and stick my head in the fridge!
Would you exercise in the heat? Have you tried Bikram yoga?
Do you think global warming is for real?
How do you manage on hot days?
