Can't Beat the Heat

This morning a rare brief rain shower, along with intermittent cloud cover, postponed the inevitable temperature climb to 107 degrees for a couple hours giving me enough motivation to get on my bike. Training for Fall events in Nevada is not easy. Low altitude and extreme heat can make any aspiring athlete feel lethargic and lazy. Since I have been traveling so frequently the past few months I try to find time to run on the hotel treadmills whenever I can but nothing can make up for the workout a real body crushing climb up a steep hill at high altitude provides. My only question is, at this rate will I be ready? I would like to submit an official request to the USAT and USAC that in Nevada the training season be moved to winter and all events be held in the early spring.
