2020 Update: We still think this is a great discussion about summer workouts for busy women, check out some of our other more recent posts on exercise and busy women, including our roundup of the best streaming workouts to do at home .
Here in NYC it’s one of those “102 degrees, feels like 107” kind of weeks. So this seems like a great time to talk about summer workouts. What are you guys doing to stay fit (and manage stress) as the mercury climbs?
For my $.02, I find myself incapable of running in this heat — so I got up first thing this morning and did one of my favorite workouts, The Firm: Get Chisel’d— with the A/C on high and a fan on. Forty minutes, interval training with some weights, and a not-too-annoying instructor… not too bad.
Psst: Looking for great workout shorts? See reader favorites and more in our recent roundup of the best women’s shorts for summer…
P.S.: In theory, this should be Beauty Wednesday… except I think I’ve written about all of the products that I love at the moment! If you have a good sunscreen (that you still use after the scary study a month or two ago) or a good mask or something else that you use occasionally that boosts skin turnover (I think it’s either alpha- or beta-hydroxy acids that are the active ingredient), please e-mail me (or comment below) — I’m in the market for ’em.
