I hoped for no rain today & WIN – no rain despite a 50/50 chance of it. So after I got home from work I took off on my skates to tackle the 1 mile length from our house to the next street & back. I made it to the stop sign, turned around & only got back to the canal before the heat got me. I was desperately seeking out any shade so I didn’t pass out when my husband, Joe, drove up. I am so so glad because I was about to seriously lose it.
The summer heat in Florida is my arch-nemesis. Seriously, I originally quit rollerblading at the beginning of the summer because of how hard it hit me – it makes me ill: red in the face, over heating, nauseous, light headed, seeing lights/spots & even hearing things sometimes. It brings any exercise to the screeching halt until I can cool off.
So I came in for the day. Joe was adamant that I start a training plan that doesn’t take me so far from the house so I can come in when I need to. We’ll see. Or maybe I’ll start doing mornings. Or monkeys might fly out of my butt.
Drenched in sweat & signing off!
