Just 4k and totally toasted!

orangeguy profile image

Well when I set off at 6.30 this morning I didn’t have a plan (unusual for me!) I was going to see how it went, this run could have turned out to be my week five 4, 5 or even 8k run I didn’t know. I have been running at this early time in the morning time since the hot weather started so I didn’t think it would be a problem but after about 2k I was very uncomfortable and totally toasted!. By the time I got home I had done spot on 4k, and that was enough for today for me :( I don’t like to moan but getting just slightly fed up with this weather now :)

Aww orangeguy it is getting too much isn’t it? Saps all your energy 😑. Supposed to be getting more comfortable tomorrow for a few days so you’ll feel better then. I can’t wait not having to be out at 5am! 💤

At least you did one of the weekly runs. Well done you! 👏🏼👏🏼

This morning was particularly warm I think, certainly was for me in the midlands. I was out a 7am for a walk (non running day today) and I was getting a sweat up just doing that. Thinking of doing a rain dance in the near future, I’ve had enough of the heat now too.

I'm not that far away, I'm in Northampton. I don't think its been any warmer today than last week but the problem for me was it was certainly warmer earlier this morning. Normally 6.30 is okish, but not today :(

7.45am for me and wished l had got up earlier! Managed 5k even though it was roasting! Just finished week 3, certainly looking a bit cooler this week. ☺
