I Miss My Morning Walks

Tuesday, August 18, 2020
I am someone who is affected by heat very easily. When my family goes to theme parks, we always have drinks in our hands after an experience at Animal Kingdom when I was 12. It was 2 in the afternoon, and I hit a wall and just said "I'm done".

One of the best things I did for myself in quarantine was to start exercising, and I mainly did that by going on early morning walks. It was so cool and the sun would barely be out so I wouldn't have to lug a huge water bottle with me or apply sunscreen. I would just make sure I had something to drink before and after, and I'd be perfectly hydrated. The only reason I would sweat was out of hard work and just from being outside.

But then it got too hot. The humidity at 6:30 in the morning was over 90%. That's too hot to even sit out on the porch in the shade. And the wet heat made me feel so gross and would just glom onto me.

I haven't gone on a walk in weeks but for someone reason I only started missing it in the last few days. Maybe now that summertime is coming to a close I can start doing it again.
