Here's an odd turn around: the last couple of winters have not been bad enough to keep me from walking outside most days. But the summers have been so hot that it's almost dangerous to be out doing anything strenuous. I'm afraid this summer is going to be worse yet. It's May and we've already hit 82 degrees. I just got back from a walk to the store, one mile each way and the time walking around in the store, it's only 11:30 am, and the sun's so hot it feels like I made the walk in the middle of an August afternoon. I'm drenched in sweat. I prefer walking outside to doing aerobics at home and I live in a hilly enough neighborhood that the walking is challenging. I guess I better change my sleep habits so I can walk as soon as the sun comes up.
