A hot weekend = less working out

I was supposed to go biking on Friday night but there was ominous lightning and thunder so I decided to play it safe and not go out- bad idea because the storms never came through our area!  So I was lazy on Friday.
On Saturday:
mountain biking on the Rocky Road trail- 6 miles of hard, challenging singletrack in 100+ weather!  After this was over, I didn't feel like I could do anymore so I bailed on the second half of the ride.  The rest of the day was spent looking for bike parts/accessories and perusing stoves and dishwashers (I bought a house, it needs new appliances).
On Sunday:
Another hot day but we started early and I did a 5 mile run on Company Mill at Umstead Park with Barbara. Lisa was out of town and Jim started almost two hours earlier than so he got in an 18 mile run in!  And in that 18 mile run, he did the Company mill and the Sycamore trail plus 6 miles of bridle trails.  He definitely has a head start on the trail marathon we are all doing in October.  I hope to run more this week and start building up some mileage.
And Monday morning:
I had to drag myself out of bed to go to Forged Fitness. I haven't been going to sleep as early as I should and it has made getting up at 5:30 AM kind of painful.  But I am glad I did:
8 thrusters (a front squat into a push press, 55 lbs)
8 ring dips (I did jumping dips since I can't do a dip without a band assist)
8 rounds!
Time: 11:58
My arms feel like they are going to fall off.
