Had my week all nicely planned - Thurs W6R2, nice lunch out, Fri swim, Sat W6R3, Sun swim etc...got up yesterday morning feeling really grim, but just told myself "it's only half an hour, it's only 2 runs of 10 mins, easy peasy I can do it" I often swim when I feel a bit "off" I always feel perfectly well after. So, off I went at 8AM, it was already 20C here in France, the first really hot day so far this year, 35C by the afternoon, and being a Brit I guess I'm not used to it....the run went OK, but for some bizarre reason I decided to go home via the steepest hill around here during my 5 min cool down walk. I normally walk the long way round which is less of a climb. It was almost deliberate self destruct... By the time I got to the top I really didn't feel too well at all... bright red, drenched in sweat, really queasy etc...just thought I would ignore it but I felt worse and worse as the morning wore on. Spoiled my lovely lunch with BaldyBoy, and I probably won't swim today, or run tomorrow. BIG lesson learnt. Running is clearly very different to swimming, at least to my body... I won't let it put me off though, but I will take a bit more account of the temperature, and how I'm actually feeling. Looking forward to a break in the weather, and some rain! Oh England, I miss you and your gentle climate!
