While the mayham was at the minimum, the month's fly-by-fast momentum was at the max.
Crazy how the (almost) 31 days of May seemed to have gone much faster than the 30 of April. But who am I to complain? May ushered us away from all the cold crap of Winter, and now we are approaching the official start of Summer.
Before I cue the warm weather bliss, allow me to share a few Mayfessions...
First of all, you know I'm a warm weather gal. I will gladly persevere through the heat and humidity of Summer, usually with a genuine smile, before settling for the freezing cold of Winter. Recently, we had a 10-day streak of high-humidity (upwards of 99%, on the daily, I kid you not). Granted the temps were moderate (mid-60F's -70F's), and there was daily rain as well. But, the humidity was off the charts for this time of year. I sweatfess, even I appreciate a period of transitional temps. Thankfully, Momma N relented, and pardoned some of that ridiculousness the past couple days...but there may have been temps in the high-40F's range on Friday. #FacePalm
Speaking of those warm and humid "early summer" conditions, a couple of my 1-mile time trials took place in the midst of all that. Yeah. As if those 1-milers weren't already tough LOL. All I can say is "WHEW! I'm glad to have those in the rear view mirror!" There's an upcoming blog post in the works, highlighting some details, insight, thoughts and takeaways, but suffice it to say that I was very impressed with what my legs could do. Hello? New PR of 7:13 (and a 7:14 as well)! Even so, I'm gonna trackfess it here and now...my fondness for the track is still pretty bleak. #JustNotMyGig
Coming up, on Sunday, is a group ride for the hubs and I. This is the ride that started it all, just after my stress fracture diagnosis. The event got bumped up to Memorial Day weekend (from the original late-August date), so most of our friends aren't able to join us. But, oh well. I bikefess, I'm still looking forward to saddling-up Gustavas and hitting the trails! PS, the weather is looking perfect! #CoupleTime
So, there you go. I've (momentarily) bared my soul (as well as my soles), and I'll be able to sleep much better. Onward!
How about you...do you have anything that needs 'fessing? Did it get hot and humid in your area, too? Speedwork on the track...yay or nay? Ever had a less-than-desirable pic that everyone seemed to like a lot more than you?
