Dear Diary (hahaha).
I feel like poo. I think I may have suffered from some heat exhaustion over the weekend. I have all of the symptoms (thanks google) which are dizziness, headaches, being tired, nausea, weakness, and thirst.
I'm not trying to make excuses for bad training days. I really feel like garbage. I am at work trying not to pass out. I didn't think it was appropriate to call in sick on my first official day as a J&J employee. And I have a lovely 10 hr day today due to New Hire Orientation before my shift.
I keep thinking about this natural swimming pool in Robert H. Treman State Park in Ithaca, NY. It's freezing cold and there's a waterfall and all I want to do is go sit underneath the waterfall and let it cool me down! We swam there once as kids and I camped there once when I was in college. I love Ithaca and all of the gorges and hiking trails, plus it's full of hippies and I freakin' love hippies! Also there is a famous vegetarian restaurant (Moosewood) there that I want to go to, but it's always closed when I'm there. :(
Even swimming in Canandaigua Lake didn't sufficiently cool me down. Yes, my hands, feet, and face were cold but the rest of me was kept warm by my wetsuit! I should have gone in naked.
