Wasn’t looking forward to this after seeing the weather forecast. But got my gear on, throw son out off to to school and drove to the beach.
It was a punishing heat but was not going to let it beat me. When I hit 5k I did think I’d stop then and do my 7k later in the week. No - you will beat this bloody heat! I carried on - found a renewed energy in my last K! Yay for me. (I also beat my last 7k by 5mins😬)
Nice cooling off of my feet after - perfect reward for dear little friends. 😁
**Pic no. 4: I’ve hated running in the heat - mouth feels so dry, fatigue kicks in and head stays ‘stop running’. I wanted to beat this as was not going to be able to get away from it this week. I haven’t taken water with me to date but thought maybe that’s my problem. I saw the post about hydration tabs last week and thought I’d try some.
Anyway whether it was a mental push or physical push it really helped. I took a tiny sip when I was flagging and I felt boosted.
8K - I’m coming to get you next week!
Anyway - enough about me! Keep hydrated, pop your sun visors on and stay safe in this heat my running friends. 😎x
