So, still on a high from my weekend 25 minute PB I thought I’d trot out and run a consolidating 5k last evening. Can’t be that hard, I thought in this weather. It’s positively balmy compared to the near 50 degrees back home. Got to 2km and oh my it got tough! Stopped 3 times to walk and almost gave up. I completely over estimated my ability to run in hot weather. Lesson learned! Take it easy out there folks!
Positively barmy: So, still on a high from my... - Bridge to 10K
I appreciate your problem. After doing what felt like an effortless 10K early on Sunday morning, today I went out for a ‘little’ 5k run and struggled from the start. Scrapped the idea of it being an interval training session and dripped, stumbled, walked, drank and sweated over the 5k, ending up doing it in 3-4 minutes more than my usual time. It felt a tough run. Humidity is so challenging.
