I can do it, but my muscles never warm up properly causing technique to suffer and giving me a poor workout.

On the other hand, I know people who are quite comfortable in low temperatures but who start to sputter in the 70's.
I'm 49: 6'2 155lbs. To date, I have not noticed any change in heat tolerance. I have always skewed toward high heat tolerance and low cold tolerance.
