Friday Fake-out

Today was one of those days where, after my walk, I cursed See, I saw earlier that they predicted at least 50% chance of thunderstorms all afternoon, and naturally I thought it wise to go out in a shirt with sleeves and long pants. WRONG! It was at least 80 but felt a lot hotter thanks to really high humidity. Then the sun came out about halfway through the walk and it was blazing. Luckily I carry the boy's sunscreen with us at all times and quickly applied it, but man, was I sweating by the time we came back. Of course, my dog took her sweet time going to the bathroom afterwards, too. Ughhh. But at least I got out there at all--I was dreading having to stay inside all day.

I will have to closely watch the predictions for tomorrow, as my training schedule calls for a 10-mile run. It will be good to know whether I should try to get up early to get out there before it gets too hot, or if I can risk waiting till naptime at noon to venture out. I have done this distance before, but not since a 10-mile race in May, and for some reason it seems particularly daunting today. Perhaps I will have to actually go to bed early tonight so I will feel better prepared.

My brain in in knots, and I've been responsible for shredding at least a shrub if not a small tree. Maybe sonnets just aren't my 'thing'! :-P I'm still trying, though.
