Stationary Heat Wave
Its damn hot here in Southern Ontario. We are experiencing the first heat wave of the summer. What does that mean for me? It means I have to sit on my ass. No running or cycling or heavy exercise of any kind. The daily temperatures are reaching the mid 30's. Which doesn't sound so bad but because I live so close to Lake Ontario, the humidity puts the temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius today. (104 F) It shows no sign of letting up all week either. I would be stupid to go for a run in this insane humidity. It isn't cooling down much until its too late in the day for exercise. I suppose I could drag my ass to the gym. *SIGH* boring and monotonous. That's the beauty of summer, the gym can suck my ass for a few months.
Needless to say I feel handcuffed (foot cuffed?). Not being able to play is like jail and this heat is like hell. However, there's something about the heat that always makes me want to work out more but logic tells me it probably wouldn't be a smart idea. So here I sit twiddling my thumbs and trying ever so patiently to wait for more normal temperatures. My D-friend was just getting used to all the regular torture.
