Hormones - If you are a guy reader, you may wish to skip this part... For some reason, my hormones have been all out of wack the past week. This can be a positive and a negative, depending on who you are in my life. If you are one of my close girlfriends, you have probably had to listen to my whining about many things; the hubs has been "treading lightly" so as not to bring on a hormone-induced rant. It has been interesting to say the least, but it is finally dying down. (Thank God!)
Heat/Humidity - I have been trying to get up at 5:15 several mornings and week for the past few weeks to get in a few quick miles. The first two weeks weren't so bad, but this week sucked. At 5:40 in the morning, it has been almost 80 degrees. This is the type of run that makes you wonder why in the hell you are even out there. It equals = totally sweaty within 4 minutes; no water after about 10; giving up after 1.5 miles and being mad at yourself. Hopefully some of the heat/humidity will calm down or this chick will have to get up at 3 a.m. to run.
Hills - The hubs and I live in a part of town called "North Hills". I have been following a certain straight out-and-back route for my weekday morning runs from home. On Tuesday, I decided to try going through some of the neighborhoods around me. It felt great to have a change of scenery at first. Then, there came the monster hills - no bueno. Needless to say, I definitely learned why the area is called "North Hills" and now totally believe that the area needs a new name because that is the biggest understatement.
I am sure there are more "H" things I can write about... Hope you are all well!!
