That was tough for one my shorter ones!! The heat was unbearable!! - for a rain runner. The fact I left without water was not a great idea too! The abundance of midges that decided to take up residence in my mouth didn't bloody help matters either. To top it, I decided I would get off the canal and add a few hills- big mistake!! I didn't stop but I was not looking good! (at all!) I managed 14k at a very slow pace . Note too self - stick to your canal, you float through! Note to others BIG RESPECT for hill and road runners - I now know how tough your runs are! Keep at it!!
