mad dogs and English people and c25kers

well must admit to being somewhat hesistant about donig a run in this heat. So I had penty to drink before setting out and decided to run slowly. Really enjoyed it in fact I ran a PB in terms of distance completing 7k. Arrived home somewhat dehydrated and rehydrated with lots of cool refreshing water. I'm somewhat sweaty smelly and tired and am about to retire to a well earned cool soak. Feeling happy! :0)

  • Well done for getting out there. I bet that cool bath felt good! The hot weather can't last for too much longer and we will miss it once it has gone .... perhaps :)

  • So you should be feeling happy :) Well done :)

  • I am very very impressed that you could do that distance in the heat and enjoy it!

    I managed the grand total of 2 miles in 25 minutes before I gave up. I enjoyed the first 15 minutes, possibly because I was going pretty slow, but enough was enough at 25 minutes. I blame the fact I come from the north east of Scotland ;)

  • 7k in this heat is a long long way. Well done for getting out there in this heat. Running Conservatively to avoid Labouring away in this heat, then taking Liberal quantities of water. Will You Kip after your soak or have something to eat? Some Greens perhaps? :)
