It's not this bad year round, but it is a chore right now! Oct through May isn't too bad here in North Central Florida.

Just finished 40 min of cardio kickboxing and core work....

130/800

Hoping for no rain tomorrow morning and low humidity so I don't have a repeat of yesterday's overheated run!!!!

(If I lived in Florida I think I'd run on a treadmill all summer and or every mile I'd have to dump ice all over me and maybe run with one of those disney stroller fans attached to a hat bc I HATE heat and humidity!!! No clue how you all do it!)

So.... Would you run at 7am in 72 degree heat and 90% humidity or 8:30 pm in 83 degree heat, and 60% humidity? At least at 8:30p, it will start to get dark. Getting up at 5 wouldn't help bc it's going to be 90% humidity then too.....

Got my DH to walk with me yesterday, part of the Fred Meijer trail going into a town nearby and then walked back around the college, about 4 miles.

Haven't been on dis much this month but need to post my goal of 1300 mins.

So far I have done

7/1 30 mins walking
7/2 30 mins walking
7/4 60 mins walking

120 mins so far!!

Getting ready to start back with my Tone It Up routines day. Will be back to post time for today this evening.

This group is really helping to keep me motivated (even though I joined late last month and didn't post much - I'll do even better this month).

7/6 - 61 min run/walk intervals (4.2mi), then walk the dog 10 min.


273/1100


Figment - I vote 8:30 pm if you've got enough light to finish the workout you want to do. 83 degrees is not too bad and the reduced humidity really helps. And as you said, the sun is going down and seems less harsh. Even at 8AM here, the sun feels very strong, the humidity is high and it's very difficult to keep going...

Today was my shorter day on the treadmill. I did 3.85 miles in 50 minutes. My goal is to do one mile per day (at least), and usually once I get on the treadmill I end up doing more .

Does sweating doing nothing count as exercise? We put new decking out around the RV at the campsite and while I did nothing but hand out tiles, I'm dying!!
It is soooo nasty

oh, I just need to have a big pity party. This has not been a good year for me.

I was walking at the park (getting my mile in between rain showers, ugh) and I tripped and fell landing squarely on both knees. One is not too bad. the other one is huge and swollen. Looks like I have a golf ball on my knee. Went for xrays and not broken--thank goodness--he thinks the bursa just filled up with fluid from the fall. It didn't hurt too much earlier, but the longer I go the more it hurts. I am glad I had the xrays. He said RICE and ibuprofen. So it is wrapped with an ace bandage and propped up. I just can't catch a break. I guess I should consider myself very lucky that my knee cap did not break.

Not sure if I will be able to do my mile tomorrow. It will be the first one I missed this year.

They took a bunch of xrays and he showed them all to us. There was one spot that looked worrisome, but since that wasn't the area that hurt he wasn't too worried about it. And I guess I have arthritis developing in my knee--there's a shocker.

Anyhow, sorry for the cranky story. I am just burned out. It is getting hard to see the positive in anything this year. I keep telling myself--at least it's not broken.
