Holy Heat Wave, Batman!!

It has been HOT the past couple days here. Yesterday we broke a record from the 1978! With the humidity it was 38 degrees (100 degrees fahrenheit !!). May should not be that hot! Makes me wonder what July is going to feel like. 


The weather has been crazy all over the province this past week or so. 




State of Emergencies declared because of out of control fires about 7 hours North of me in Timmins, ON.

State of Emergency in Thunder Bay, ON (2 hours from my hometown) because of a flash flood yesterday.

And here we are dying of heat. Mother nature is out of control! 




Yesterday was our scheduled run after work. My boss is hardcore and is willing to run in rain or shine, so she gave us the option of running after work in the heat or waiting until today. Stupidly  Surprisingly, most of us said we'd attempt running in the heat. We were all dreading it, but mostly wanted to get the run over with. Running in the heat is very hard and I find that it really hinders my breathing. However, my run yesterday was actually pretty good! The last 6 minutes were tough, I felt sooooo hot, but breathing was fine. I didn't run as far as I have been, but considering the circumstance, I think I did pretty well!

My first 5k is in 20 days!! I'm still really nervous about it, but I'm confident that I can complete it :)
