On my way to 10K

On my way to 10K

Ideal day for my W4 long run, a tad breezy but that was a welcome in my face cool down at times.....resigned myself to the fact that if it’s above freezing, it’s shorts and t shirt, anymore and I’m overheating.....anyone else have this problem, if you can call it that? 🤔

Did a lot of there and back running this morning which I quite enjoyed. Felt reasonably comfortable, breathing was even legs felt good to the extent that once I’d completed the 8K, I found myself further from home than I’d have liked.

Only one thing for it, so off I go doing walk/sprinting intervals for the 1k to the end of the lane 😊🏃🏃

2 more weeks and I’m there.

Happy running folks 🏃🏃‍♀️🏃🏃‍♀️

Wow, another brilliant run and stonking good pace as well. Mo Farah needs to watch out at the Great North Run at this rate, well done.

Thanks Jan, yes it did. Could’ve gone on but erring on side of caution after last time 😊

Well done Ted...excellent run. I am still nursing back injury so not been out for a while.

Re. 'overheating': I certainly relate to that. I am my happiest in cold, frosty weather and at my most miserable when the weather is very warm. I rarely wear more than a light top and thin leggings/ shorts to run: any more and I just overheat. Many shops and public buildings are so warm they make me feel ill and sweat like a dog chasing a bone tied to its tail. I am already wondering how I will cope in the Summer: very early mornings will be my running time I think. My biggest problem while swimming is water being too warm: many, if not most, swimming pools are like a bath.

I have always been the same, not sure why...possibly because I've worked outside most of my life? My wife is off out for a run at this very minute: she is rugged up like a Cactus in Siberia...gloves, big woolly hat, insulated top, muff...the works. She is the opposite to me and rarely gets a tinge of pink in her cheeks on a blazing June day while I am sweating like a horse after the Grand National. Isn't it amazing how different we all are?

One thing I know: a 'man for all seasons' I am not.

I think I’m going to be a early morning runner during the summer.

I’ve entered the Great North Run in Sept...I’m praying it’s a cool day 😊

Great Run! 8k down, 10k firmly in sight.

I am a cold person normally but can't run in lots of clothes. I start off with teeth chattering but am sweating after a mile or so. My internal thermostat is broken.

Thanks L-L and I can relate to that. Early morning summer runs me thinks 😊🏃🏃

Wow Ted, great distance and pace. It took me that time to do only 6k. You are going from strength to strength

Thanks Flick, I don’t know where it’s coming from. I even set my 5K PB en route 😊

You’ll get there, I don’t have your hills here 😊
