What goes down, must go up

One day I will write a blog post without complaining about the weather, I swear! But today is not that day.  An enormous high pressure system is parked overhead, so the temperature is forecast to be in the high 90s all week.  Today it was already 85º at 9am, but there was a little breeze and the humidity was relatively low. I dialed back my expectations and set my timer for 30 minutes and headed out.  The first half was okay, but the second half I felt terrible!  It turned out really slow.

It didn’t help that I chose the route of Big Hills (no idea why; I just was pointed that way and kept on going).  Going down them was okay, but coming back up…

Regardless, it’s one of those days where just getting out the door is reason to cheer.  I did what I could, and it was sufficient.

Unfortunately, I think my headphones have given up the ghost.  The left ear started to cut out intermittently and then stopped entirely, and no amount of jiggling could make it come back.  I’ll let them dry out and test again, but my gut feeling is that it’s time to replace them. They lasted nearly a year of hard, sweaty use…

    We obviously live in the same place. I keep my blog anonymous, so I don’t publish my whereabouts, but more than once I’ve thought we must be close by.

    Today was a scheduled run, and it didn’t happen. Mondays are bad for motivation…

    Also I was going to mention that I run in a skort – just because that’s what I happened to have, and I knew my regular shorts would ride up. I would definitely consider a running skirt – it seems like they would be cool and breezy.

    And I took your recommendation for Moving Comfort bra, but unfortunately they don’t have ANY bras in my size (42 DD+). But I ordered a Champion; we’ll see how that works out. And it’s MAGENTA.

      I hope the new sports bra works out for you! It’s such a process to find one that works, especially for busty folks.

      I think I can say that I live in the Mid-Atlantic region of the US in the suburbs of a major city? Is that too specific or too vague? :) Nonetheless this big system is sitting over half the country right now! Hope you’re staying cool!
