I found some water, but it was HOT. Today it hit 113. I know for people who live here this isn't big news, but it still blows my mind. The low last night was 90 degrees. I swam in the outdoor pool at work today and at first I thought it was going to be amazing. To be able to swim outside, where my tinted goggles actually allow me to see better, and feel the sun. It all sounds so refreshing until you get in the water and realize that trying to train in bath water with the sun baking down and the air you breath is dry and on fire. Hmmm, I need to find a better summer swimming option. I was able to crank out 1,200 before I thought I was going to die from heat stroke.
