The damn hot report

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

emoticon I went walk/jogging at 9:00 at night and it's still 97 degrees outside in Dallas. There is a joke about living in Texas - the weather is either hot or dang hot and those are the only two options besides winter which isn't very cold compared to most states.

Tonight was the first time I jogged in 7 or so weeks. emoticon I think I had a small stress fracture in my foot, so I self imposed 4 weeks off due to the fact that I was scheduled to start teaching a boot camp and I didn't want to go into that commitment limping. I started teaching on June 9th and now teach weekly.

This picture cracked me up - pretty much how we see things down here in Texas even though it's blistering hot right now.

Anyway...I felt fine jogging but tried not to push it too much. I went 30 minutes and walk/jogged at less than a 16 minute pace. I came home and did back and chest weights and some stretching. Going to bed feeling satisfied with that.

This is the other pic I found this week that I liked. I was afraid after such a long break that I would not run anymore. Busted out of that fear tonight by just jogging and feeling fine.

Keep on sparking peeps!

    I'm in your shoes with the running, too. After I did my second half in December, I was having some side issues (we think it's a pulled muscle) and I haven't really ran since December. Now, I"m missing it and I'm afraid to start again in fear of my side hurting again. But, now that I'm going on vacation tomorrow, I'm going to start again and hope for the best!! Glad your run went well. You give me hope!!

    Most of the summer we've been blessed with cooler than normal weather, in the 70's (my version of heaven, SF Bay Area) but as the high pressure over the mid-section of the country moves, we will be in the triple digits next week (hate hate hate the heat).

BUT all those mrns at the tv news desks, think heat is something to celebrate. They get positively giddy over heat. They should be taken out & $&@$)/:! and replaced with real people who have to live & deal with heat, not live in some air conditioned studio. Time to get off my personal soapbox now.

Notice you can re-arrange the letters of heat to spell HATE!

    I love the hot weather, but it does make outside exercise more difficult!

    I grew up in NM and I never did adjust to heat. Went to college in AR where they added humidity to heat (UGH) then moved to Alaska where they removed the heat and kept the humidity. The SF Bay Area is, most of the time, perfect...

Love the pics!

    Great job! I don't like running in the heat at all. I feel soooo slow. Thankfully in Boston this week it's been nice. This weekend though it will be 90. Yikes.

    Stay cool emoticon and drink up that H2O!

We have a heat advisory out today for Minnesota. With the humidity factoring in, they are talking triple digits. I know that is probably a daily occurrence for Texas but when you add in the humidity, it really makes it miserable. Plus, we generally do not get that hot here all summer so it takes a while for your body to adjust.

I am being crazy and going for a run today even with the pollution warning and heat advisory. I will take it easy though.

Hope you are having a great Wednesday!!!

    Dude, I'm feeling ya. I left work and the little temp reader at the bank said 110 degrees! Probably not that high, but I miss the fall days when I could run outside after work (instead of having to drag my butt out of bed in the morning to run, like I did this morning). lol

    Hot as H*** here too. Sorry, don't like hot weather, it doesn't agree with me. Love your Texas sign. Each state should have their own version.

Be careful in this heat. Hydrate!
