It took until today, May 15th to make the 80s this year. At least I don’t believe we’ve made it into the 80s yet. I think the best this year so far was 79 but not positive without going and looking at the records. It’s in the mid 80s and somewhat dry now. It was rainy and humid this morning and felt nasty when I did my strength workout for the day.
Today started out warm and very foggy with some light rain. Normal spring weather here until the ocean warms up. Towards the afternoon the clouds started thinking and the temperature started warming up a bit. Finally around 2:30 or 3:00 the humidity dropped and wind picked up with clearing sky. The temperature shot up after that. It was actually pretty nice to lay on the patio chair in the sun to recover from the WOD.
The entire winter has been mild this year, there’s no denying that. There has been plenty or rain though and the rain has been mostly on the days when Molly had off and we’d be able do do something. By luck she had off today and we wanted to get outdoors. No appointments or other plans were there to interfere with that today! The original idea was to go to middle creek but we decided to stay closer to home so went to grab a couple of caches on the Conewago trail.
I did the first WOD earlier. That was deadlifts and burpees. Not bad. The burpees slowed me down a decent amount do to space and not having room to trip over the bar safely. The deadlifts went really well. I chose 225 pounds for basically 4 a minute adding another burpee each minute and they felt light. I’m happy with that considering I haven’t been deadlifting or lifting anything heavy for that matter in a few months.
The temperatures today over performed by 10 degrees over the forecast with it getting into the 50s instead of the 40s for the high. A good chunk of the day was sunny too! Had we known we would have gone caching but we had other things we needed to do. Then again there was still a lot of wet icy sleet where the sun doesn’t shine and we wanted to go the the river trail where the sun is blocked by the hill a good part of the day.
