27 degrees! I was going to do a 5k there and back, but after 1k, and even with a breeze and intermittent shade, my lungs were going like a Grand National winner, so I turned around and came back. Dripping but surprisingly exhilarated, though I really didn't want to run any further and i was slow as a slow thing. It's so humid the air is like something solid. I've done a short run two days running because i have to go to the dentist tomorrow and won't have time to run (he's half a day's travel away).
Meanwhile I have raised 112% of my target in donations for British Heart Foundation, for the 10k race at Blenheim Palace in September. I had been stressing because i discovered they use animal testing, so I didn't want to contribute to that. However, I emailed them about it and they are happy to put my donations towards an area that doesn't involve animal testing, plus they are finding our more about that side of things for me.
And meanwhile, following on ju-ju- 's running clothes drawer thread, I thought i would tidy mine and count how many of what I have at the same time. Gulp: 8 pairs of leggings, 6 pairs of capris, 2 pairs of shorts, 6 racing back vests, two short sleeved tops, 3 long sleeved tops, two running jackets, 4 pairs of running shoes, a Flipbelt, a camel back type backpack. I'm not even going to count the socks, shock absorber bras and other sundries. I've realised I now have to keep running till I'm 110 to wear it all out and justify the expense!
