1. It's very hot here. As in 80s should be summer hot. As one who likes her seasons to be "right" I'm not loving it. It's very hot in my second story southern exposure nonairconditioned classroom. How much learning do you think happens in the afternoon when all the students and teachers are grumpy from being so hot? It has always been hot in the late spring in my classroom but now we have some guy with not enough to do going around checking to see if we have wedges in our doors. No wedge in our door creates no air flow whatsoever! It also makes you feel snooty and unfriendly. We also don't have fans. Yeah, bring back some cold weather. More than 2 months of this before summer vacation would be way way too much.
2. I also don't have my "warm weather" clothes out yet. I usually switch things around over April break, a month away. So I don't have many options and today went casual with my Nike elevators/stairs shirt. I don't think I ever got so many compliments in one day. Forget the dresses and skirts. I'll just wear my Nike gear.
3. I did come home and run in the heat Monday rather than go to the gym as planned. It was nice to be outside and I thought it was time to get acclimated because who knows what it will be like for my next two races.
4. I did receive a couple of emails from my swim instructor who forgot the lesson. She was mortified and offered to come to my pool to give the lesson, extend my lessons and add an extra lesson. My pool is for relaxing and I couldn't see making her get there at 5:30 a.m. That seemed to be a cruel punishment that didn't fit the crime! She also gave me her 50 cents worth on wet suits. I have asked many people about the whole sleeve vs. sleeveless and gotten so many opinions. It is very confusing. But my instructor has seen me swim, works with lots of swimmers, conducts tri workshops and swims in these waters so I may lend a little more weight to her opinion. She is going to bring me her suits to try if I want. When I got into this whole I am going to do a tri thing I wasn't going to wear a wet suit. I think if I thought I was I may have decided not to attempt the triathlon. And why did I decide I wanted to do a tri? That will have to another post!
