Hot hot hot

Did my first longer run of Ju-Ju’s plan this morning - 5.5k but it was the hardest run I have ever done by far. I tried to get out early to avoid the really hot sun but it was still really blooming hot! Just after half way I really wanted to give up...more than I ever have before. Managed to carry on and complete 5.5k but really had to talk myself through it and when I got home I was so dizzy!

I can’t believe I’m saying this but I actually can’t wait for the rain later on this week 😬

Thanks, lots of talking to myself required I think 😂

Hope your next run feels better! We all have a terrible run once in a while. Mine was last Tuesday. It rocked my confidence a little but my next run was fantastic. Don't let it discourage you. :) How hot is it?

Thanks! I won’t let it put me off, just maybe try & stay out of the sun. It wasn’t even that hot I don’t think - mid twenties maybe but I’ve just found that the sun really does have a big effect on me. Maybe some woodland runs during the summer months!

Good to hear you’ve had a good run after a bad one...I’ll definitely be back out there on Tuesday 🏃‍♀️
