We went to Little Dippers in Mount Joy for our first time this summer to get ice cream. They have it from the Penn State Creamery and that is hands down some of the best ice cream that I’ve ever had.
Today was the first full day of summer. Here in Lancaster County, it was a cool and damp one.
You know that it must be pretty humid when the sun is shining, but it’s raining. There were only very thin clouds, but it was raining enough to wet the ground this afternoon.
For the second day in a row now, we had a pretty decent thunderstorm.
I had a nice fourth of July in the garage gym today. Everything went well, and you can’t really ask for better weather in the middle of summer.
It’s not really that hot this morning, but my hands were very sweaty. That’s one of those things that hurts me more than anything. My lifts went surprisingly well considering that.
It is hotter than Hell Today. It was about 90 ℉ when I went out into the garage, but I still did okay with my stuff. I am thankful that we have and use an air conditioner for our garage gym.
Today brought heat and humidity. That helped us get a decent thunderstorm later in the day.
We had a pretty decent thunderstorm pop up just before hitting us. It makes the past couple of brutally hot days sort of worth it at least.
After we got done with the grocery store I did my strength for today and it felt great. Power clean day!!
I did another WOD after I did my birthday burpees. I upgraded the burpees to burpee pull-ups again this year.
Today was a good day in the home gym. I did my lifts and they felt great. The WOD was tough but successful too. They always leave you feeling good.
We finally installed the air conditioner in the garage window. That will help with the heat and humidity. It wasn’t too bad today but I did have it on to dry the air up a bit. Later I came up with the dumb idea to do a brutal WOD outside in the heat.
It was another hot day today. The middle nineties type of heat made it too hot for me to workout. Fortunately the day was capped off with aa nice very heavy and cooling thunderstorm
Installing the air conditioner in the gym’s window is paying off now. I did my lifting with it on while it was in the middle 90s outside. Without the air I would have most likely failed due to heat.
It was a hot day in with the high shooting up into the middle nineties after a low in the low sixties. I still doubled up on WODs.
We finally installed the old air conditioner in one of the garage windows. That will make it more pleasant in the garage folr working out. The air conditioner helped me get through my lifts this morning. Later on in the afternoon w did a WOD together out on the patio
After yesterday’s clusterfuck of a day in the realm of fitness I’m feeling a lot better today
Today I wasn’t really feeling it at all. I still tried to do WOD but I quit the WOD. It all started with me essentially tripping over my own foot trying to run. It just wasn’t working for me today.
It wasn’t quite as humid this morning so I did my strength work then instead of waiting.
Today was a lazy day for me. It was just too damned hot and humid to workout for me. I’m just pouring sweat doing nothing.
This morning it was humid but my squats and bench actually felt pretty good. I was going to do a WOD too but lost track of time and forgot to do one.
The heat and humidity are still screwing with me lifting. Today it was a cause of a double failure on my lifts. Disappointing but not unexpected since my body doesn’t deal with heat very well.
The past couple of days have been hot and very humid with showers and thunderstorms popping up every day. A nice cluster popped up this evening but missed us by a mile or two. We did get a nice view of cloud to ground lightning under the storm.
Today didn’t go so well in the garage. It was very humid and I failed my squat from the humidity. I was sweating so much it almost seemed as if the bar was slipping on my shoulders.
We had a great time attending a geocaching event. After the event Lynn twisted our arms into doing some more caching. We got caught in a severe storm and lots of roads were blocked by downed trees.
Today we should get some nice thunderstorms and there were already nice looking cells out west this morning. It will be a nice break from the past couple of days of Hell like heat.
So far this summer has been great. The easy has been mostly a trough and no real heat so far. Hope this pattern continues into the winter too! There’s been plenty of thunderstorms too.
It’s pretty cool to see summer snow on Mount Washington. That area just has such interesting weather due to its elevation and location.
Today was the summer solstice. The sun is moving south now. Soon the sun will set in the arctic, and it’ll be snow time!
