So last night we had a softball game. Nice leisurely summer activity right? Nope. It was 36C (thats around 97F) before humidity. I usually mock people that complain and add the humidex (or wind chill in the winter), but holy hell! Humidex was at 42C (107ish). Catcher's gear for 7 innings and I thought I was going to die. It could have been a wet tshirt contest out there. Not only that, but last night my bat decided to come alive. I had at least 3 hits, one of which was a double. Made it home 3 times. I don't think I've ever hoped to be left on base before! So ya, run around like a maniac, then hop straight into the gear.

We did win though, which is a rarity this year. Seventh inning, we got 6 runs, we were on fire. *g*

Then - hockey at 7am this morning. I woke up at 6:24 (slept in and it wasn't even a good sleep) and was dressed and on the ice by 6:50!! I have determined that hockey was not meant to be an all year sport. The people who design arenas cheat on the insulation - makes sense in the winter right? Well in the summer, it ain't so fun to be on the mush they call ice. Luckily (??) last night toughened me up, so while everyone was dying in their gear, I was feeling pretty good! Even managed to lay a guy out. He came skating along head down straight at me, I warned him, then dropped the shoulder *g* So maybe I do deserve to be called a goon.

This exercising thing is a sickness. I'm feeling like I should be running or something tonight. Hmm. Nothing on the schedule till Thursday - 7am hockey and softball in the evening. It's going to kill me I tell ya.
Who does she think she is?

Hey, welcome to my world. I used to be absolutely cruel to people who thought is was too cold. Then I moved down here. Unfortunately, Thorne073 was one of those people, so he had a great time when I started bitching about it being below 40 degrees. :)

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

It is a sickness, I agree. I have never been "infected" with it, but boy does my husband have it bad. Since he "hasn't been riding the bike much", he has been riding *and* running. If he knew how to swim, I would have a triathelete on my hands. He gets soooooo cranky if he doesn't do something for a few hours a day, six days a week. At least I can be glad he usually takes one day off?

Oh! triathon! I so want to do the try-the-tri next year....guess I should get moving on the biking. *g*

I can say that I'm not at 6 days a week (yet..) but then thinking about it, I tend to do something in the morning and something at night too.

Then I get to the next sentence and was like, "DOH!"....

Tis a foul and cruel thing to dash the simple hopes of your friends!

*tsking*

You have to remember, I play catcher - think about that - dusty infield, drenched catcher - not a primo photo op.

We did however have a great tickle fight in the showers after (I couldn't resist)

Oh wow, having had about 36 here too in Joliette, I can understand Softball playing in such a hot and humid weather can be quite a struggle!
But yeah! at least you won!

I have to Happily congratulations you for laying that guy out, lol, after all, you did warn him! yes, he deserved it! (can you tell I have man issues these days? haha!)

I am like you for the running; I feel there's like a need; I can't somehow help myself.

And I am pretty sure your favorite Hockey team is 'Les senateurs d'Ottawa?
(I think you mentioned it in Questionsonly).

A nice evening to you!
(:

Maybe you should take up hockey!

The Sens are my favorite now. I was a Habs fan for the first 23 years of my life, but gotta support the home guys. Habs are next on my list.

Good night Judith.
