Hi Spark Friends,
I've decided to not complain about the heat, but compliment myself instead. I do not function as well in the heat as I used to when I was a young thing. So I could easily use it as an excuse to not get out for my runs. I've been pretty consistent this summer, despite some health challenges. My Spark friends have been so supportive.
Tonight I put on my running duds and waited and waited and waited for the temps to go down. The only thing going down was the sun, so I just took off (promising my husband I'd be careful.....we affectionately call him Captain Safety). I figured I had about a 1/2 hour before complete dark, so I decided I would go 15 minutes out and 15 minutes back.
This is a sign on a local business I passed on our main boulevard. When I saw the temp. flash up on the sign, I paused my Nike Run program and snapped a picture.
My victory is that I am being cautious, but not using excuses any more. The exercise has become fun, invigorating, and mood elevating. Woo Hoo.
Have a wonderful week, my Spark friends, filled with health, fitness, and love.
