[sweet summertime]

I know that it's springtime, but this past weekend we had some glorious summer weather with temperatures in the high 80s to mid 90s. Did I tell you that from Saturday-Sunday our AC was broken? At night it was so hot that we pretended we were camping and had so much fun. Ok, I lied- I am a total AC freak and was NOT in a good mood. I even took a sleeping pill so that I could fall asleep. (that is how much I hate being hot!) Needless to say, I was delighted when it took the maintenance man all of 5 minutes to fix the AC. (I might have preferred that there was a huge earth ending type of disaster to our AC and not that he had to go tinker around and fix it in 5 minutes) It left me wondering why I haven't trained David in AC repairs?

Saturday & Sunday were spent lounging at the pool, the freezing water was refreshing to the blazing sun. In the heat of Saturday I took a "nice long run" and was sohotabouttodie that I stopped. Once I got home I jumped in the car to determine the distance, knowing that I had run at least 3 miles.... how about 1.5 -->Total. Definitely blaming that one on the heat--that was pitiful. However, by the sweat on me & the redness all over I had a good workout--even if it was such a short distance. I couldn't have made it to "at least 3" if I tried--at least not without passing out first :-)

I am happy it's been spring temperatures. We have enough hot and cold for the year.

Meg said...

The weather has been great here, too!

I don't think I can run 3 miles even if i tried so I'm just not even going to attempt that.

Don't beat yourself up! You did great, especially in that heat!!

living in FL with the summer well on its way I think your idea about learning AC repair is the best idea yet. I would have to eat the whole bottle of sleeping pills to sleep thru a night of heat. I would die on Survivor.

haha I am not a big HOT person either. Gosh, I really need to start running again. I probably won't even be able to run a full mile! Glad your AC is fixed:) Love your spring photos!

I hate it when that happens. You come home all excited just to figure out you went ¼ of the distance you thought you were going. I wish it was hot here, it’s been raining since Saturday!

At least you attempted the run. It is scary running in super hot weather. I think it is a good thing you stopped. :)

It was/still is very hot here too and we don't have our AC on yet... I was quite "moody" last night as well - haha!

I too have been annoyed that it has been so freaking hot! But then it is going to be 60 at the end of the week- how unfair!

I totally hear you...I just recently started running outside and it is rough in the heat!

Lis said...

It was SOOOO hot this weekend, girl your run was totally because of the heat!!

And I'm so glad your ac is fixed. Ours had some issues last spring on a weekend like this and I thought I was going to die!!
