Mid-afternoon we had dueling cell phone apps saying 96 F and 100 F! So I took it nice and easy biking home.
There was a nice breeze, so I didn't notice the buckets of sweat until I got home and came inside and the breeze stopped evaporating it in place. Additional hydration was in order!
And of course with that sun beating down, I didn't want to try to compete by watering at the same time, so this morning I did not go back to bed after taking my thyroid pill at 4:20, but got into sweats and started dragging hoses around in the pre-dawn dark.
This of course, messes with my normal routine of dress, pack lunch, cook the steel cut oats, and sit down to Spark.
Don't know about the rest of you Sparklers, but when I do things in an odd order, that's when I lose things or miss a step... thus my status... hope I remember to go get dressed before I go to work!
There's a method to this madness, actually two. One, I'm watering while the ground has a chance to actually retain some of the moisture. Two... my training schedule says "run" today, and I want to be able to go outside guilt-free after work to get my minutes / miles in! Win-win!
