Beat the Heat!

Illinois weather is sometimes very strange. It seems like the past couple years, we've had two seasons: Miserably Hot or Frigid Cold. Spring & Fall have seemed to just skipped right over. For example, last Monday when my friend and I went for a walk, it was about 40 degrees and misting rain the whole time. We were troopers though and walked our 1.5 miles all bundled up in coats.

Then the weekend happened, and Mother Nature decided it was time to be hot like July & have record-breaking temperatures in mid-May. Not cool.

So this Monday during our walk, it was about 95 degrees with humidity that felt like probably 80-90%. MISERABLE. Buuuuut... we did it. Another 1.5 miles down, this time wearing as light-weight of clothes as possible! By the time we were done I was hot, miserable, sweaty, and had a headache. But, I did it.

Great job! I really dislike working out in the heat, but the summer is coming and I'm not going to give up my habit. Sounds like you've got a good friend!

ha! i LOVE that you are still smiling! AND giving a thumbs up :) it's the SAME where i live. we usually dont get much of a spring or fall. this year, spring has been much the same as you described....freezing and then HOT. but we usually only get FREEZING...so im not complaining!

eason has just started here, so our weather is drifting between about 65F and 'just kill me', sadly the humidity seems to be staying with us, the summer weather will be all downhill from here I think.
