Affected by Heat?

In Central Ohio we've had unusual temperatures. It was colder than typical at the beginning of Spring, and now it is unusually hot.

Normally heat does not bother me once I am acclimated. However, with the sudden heat, I'm not adjusted yet. My walk this morning was just to the library, one loop around the Lane Road Park, and back home for 3 miles total.

That short walk and whatever pollens are prevalent right now wiped me out! Not only was I unable to walk fast, I've been dragging and had a headache most of the day. (Usually after a morning walk, I feel more energized.)

Once I'm acclimated, I'll be fine. It just takes a little time walking in heat for me to adjust.
