The temperature today is at least 100 degrees and probably higher. I skipped my FF class this morning and stayed home to tend to some things around the house. I had planned to go outside to do some needed yardwork, but I kept putting it off. Then it was so hot, I figured there was no way I could handle the heat doing yardwork. However, I did consent to go with "L" on a bike ride. It is now almost 9:00 p.m. I got home around 8:00, and I am still not cooled down. We left at 5:30. It was hot, sunny, and a hard ride. On part of the ride there were hills and a big headwind. We went about 26 miles. We did not make good time, but I was just sooooo hot! Also, my tires did not have enough air, and "L" said that slowed me down. I was really holding him up. He could have gone much faster without me. I was disappointed in myself. I thought I was in better shape and more conditioned. I am hoping that it was mainly the heat that got to me. I also see that one bottle of water was not enough. I needed more. But I will keep at it! I am not giving up! I have lbs to lose and goals to reach! You all keep going too!
