Trying To Kill Myself

So today it was hot enough that I finally put on my new summer work out outfit. It's all white so that if I walk in the dark people can see me. And it's all athletic looking. He he he. Which is totally not me. I feel so goofy wearing it. But it was hot out, so I figured, now is the time.

Well, then the storm came in. I wasn't far into my walk when I heard the thunder. I could have turned back. But I figured instead of walking 2 1/2 miles, I'll just jog a mile with a bit of walking to warm up (which I'd already done) and to cool down, and I'll beat the storm.

I think I was trying to give myself a heart attack!

Nah. Actually, I did okay. There were some uphill parts that I said screw it and walked. But other than that I survived the jogging. And maybe I'll start doing that instead of walking. It's faster.

As for the storm? Well, I almost made it back in time. When the drizzle started coming that felt nice. When it picked up to a light rain it was still nice. (Because jogging is hot work.) But once it started drenching ... wet and cold. Oh well.

At least now I should have a fair idea if my tent is stormproof. It's still sitting out there.

I just got my summer workout outfit also, but its black, lol. I actually really like jogging in a light rain, or even heavy rain.

Light rain I like. Heavy rain ... not so much.

And normally I'm all for black myself, but I figured for safety reasons I'd get white. Which is part of the reason the outfit is so not me. But it's fun.

Ain't it fun? Going till you can't go any further... then pushing through till your second wind. Have fun out there.

Fun? I dunno... But I did it. It reminded me of my old high school days in track season. So it was at least nostalgic. I tried to do it the next day too, but I just couldn't keep it up. My legs didn't have it in them. So I walked my normal two and a half miles instead, but now I'm regretting that. My muscles are so sore.
