Is it just me?
This is the time of year in Yellowknife where cardio becomes cardiac. In the heat of Summertime we are all running around like maniacs, biking, hiking, walking, jogging - all in the good spirit of 18-24 hrs of sunlight. Literally, 11 p.m. can feel like 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and one can just hop on the ole bike and take her for a spin. The energy levels follow suit too - I really am almost never tired in the summer. Hungover, maybe, but never really tired.
Enter mid-winter, I walked my dog up an inclined part of our street the other morning (the incline being ever so slight) and I was aware that I should probably start walking to work (wheez wheez). Lol. Nuff said.
