Walked 15 Miles in the Hot Sun Yesterday…

…and now my whole body is an aching mess. Oy! When my roommate and I set off for our daily constitutional around noon yesterday I wasn’t anticipating the length of the walk. It turned out to be about 15 miles. That wouldn’t have been so bad except the sun was blistering yesterday. Granted, it was only 90 degrees, still, it felt almost like being stranded on the Sahara. At one point, when we were resting at the Daybreak Indian Cultural Center in Discover Park, my blood sugar dipped and I started feeling shaky and dizzy. Because I’d underestimated the length of the walk I’d committed to I’d only brought two plums to eat. Anyway, after procuring a few candy bars from the Shell on Government Way we continued our stroll. I’m a complete redneck now – physically. I think it’ll be a few days before I set off for another walk again. Hopefully by then the weather will be cooler and I’ll have packed more vittles in my knapsack.
