|Not one of the actual puppies I encountered today...|
No biggee. Sometimes you just have to stop and scratch a puppy.
But then it started getting warm. I walked another mile, started feeling not so hot and decided I needed fuel, so I stopped again to eat, and presumed all was well. I was fed and well hydrated, so it was time to knock off the next 7 miles.
Except...that little burger was not settling well. Kinda like last week. So I think I need to find something else I can tolerate on my walks. I kept going, thinking sooner or later that burger would have to find a spot in my stomach to just settle, but by then it was a bit warm and I was away from shade.
At a little over 7 miles, I was close to my car and decided I stop for a while. I'll go back out after it cools down a bit for the last 3 miles.
Tomorrow is 5 miles...I think I'm going to ride out to the gym, park my bike and stow my gear in a locker, and walk in Vacaville. After I'm done, unless it's way too crowded, I might jump in the pool for a bit, or at least soak in the hot tub for a few.
Presuming I remember to take a swimsuit.
I don't think they'd appreciate a nekkid Thumper in the hot tub...
