The steamiest parkrun yet!

Did it! πŸ’ͺ The wind was gusty, the rain mostly held off, but oh my word the humidity!

Not speedy, but I had no expectations today. I’m definitely a cool weather runner I’ve decided. But hey, got round, didn’t walk and although it wasn’t a parkrun PB by any stretch, it was sub 40 minutes which was my goal today.

Bring on my 7k on Monday. Hope it’s cooler. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Hope you all had great runs, and didn’t get blown around too much! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ‘

Thanks Equi, you’re right, and even though my snail was with me a bit today 🐌, I could have run further, although not faster! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

You are doing great cheeky, I was masrshalling on the prom today and it was extremely windy. As I said to everyone, at least you got out of your bed and ran. Enjoy that 7k in calmer conditions

Wow Dexy, I can’t imagine how it would have been running on the coast today! Kudos to all coastal parkrunners!

Keeping everything crossed for less dramatic conditions for us all! πŸ€žπŸ˜€πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Well done - I ran along the canal today and it was very blustery , but you’re right about the humidity- I did chuckle at the chap with the mobility scooter taking his dachshund for a walk - well I say walk but it was too windy and she wouldn’t get off his knee!!! Good luck with the 7k!

Haha the Dachshund had the right idea!

There’s a Dachshund that runs our parkrun - so cute and it always has a blast. My Lab made friends with him this morning. πŸ•β€οΈπŸ•

Well done for getting out and that sounds like a great run!

It's tough running in this wind, I've just done a painful 5k in it.

I think I've had nearly 5 litres of water today.

I hope it cools down after a week

Roll on proper autumn! This heat is so wrong! I ran 5k yesterday and was a soggy mess despite going extra slow! 😰😰
