More training related but I seem more at home in the Sandbox these days - For those who travel around a bit, what's easier - training in extreme heat or bitter cold? I've just done 4 years in the Middle East and must say, the Summers are oppressive. There's really only 3 months where I find the temperature great for training, the rest of the year, every day is a challenge to beat the heat. We get several months of mid to high 40's day-after-day. It regularly gets to 50. Even Autumn and Spring are mid to high 30s. One challenge is finding a pool cool and big enough to swim in and forget the sea in the summer - you start to cook after 15mins. Running is the most difficult though - the treadmill becomes your only option as running outdoors is slow with health risks. I have not had to train through a proper white Winter but like the idea of working in Europe and having 4 proper seasons. Rugging up and going for a run seems to be appealing right now. Has anyone done both? ie. worked and trained in a blistering environment plus done the same in sub zero. What is easier to manage, extreme hot or cold?
