Couch to 5K

Run in 30 degree heat or go to the Pub? Yep, I went to the Pub!

It was so damn hot yesterday I couldn't face running. I had spent all afternoon cooped up in the office talking myself out of the run and into the pub. When I actually finished work and got back to the coast, it wasn't that warm but by this time I wanted a pint so off I went.

I decided that I should do the run before work today which turned out to be a good call. It was lovely and cool this morning and I had a great run and managed to knock 30 secs of my PB too! :)

It was nice retracing my steps from my early pre-woods couch25k route. Only this time belting round without stopping, well not quite belting but it felt like that, lol.

The downside is I will have to go back out again tomorrow to get my fix in time to have a rest before the Park Run on Saturday. Oh well I enjoyed them few beers :)

I think given the heat of late everyone is in the same boat - it's so exhausting doing nothing but sit in the office for 8 hours.

good luck with tomorrow - it's going to be even warmer!!

Happy Running


Beer versus running? Oooh, now THERE'S a challenge!
