I’ve been trying to describe extreme #heatintolerance this past week. .
.
Picture at which point your own able body starts to hit breaking point due to heat… Is it at 90°? 100°? What temperature or humidity level starts to make you crumble, lose all energy and even the ability to think straight? At what temp does it feel like you can’t breathe?
.
.
For me, it starts around 65-70°. By the time it gets to 85-90° I’m essentially incapable of functioning. Picture an hourglass where the central skinny neck suddenly expands to drop ALL of the sand (i.e. energy)– WHAM!– all at once. It’s 9 am and you’ve got nothing left to give.
.
.
One step at a time till autumn, a slog to kinder days.

  1. For me it’s usually anything above 95, which around here means the heat index is 100 +. Yesterday was 98 with a heat index of 107. I’ll go out before and after the sun, my “vampire” schedule.🌞😓
