Week 8 finished at last!!!!!

After awful runs earlier this week, I went out for r3 at 6 this morning (to dodge the heat which I just cannot cope with) and listened to my own music ( to dodge the DIRE w8 tracks - sorry Julie but I really cannot stand you!!), and I really was back to my normal self!!! It was lovely!! Can't wait for my next run!!!! Cannot believe I only have 3 runs left.

But the elephant in the room is how on earth I am going to manage a race for life in July in the middle of the day, in the middle of a potential heatwave?????!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ˜จ hot weather running tips for people who can't run in the heat anyone?? Anyone????????!!!

  • I hate running in the heat too. My handy hint is is to wear wet clothes !! or pray for a rainy day...Good luck with the RFL.

  • Thank you! I will actually try that tip! I wore my little shorts for the first time today too which probably helped, I have run in Capri tights every time so far. Also thinking of taking one of those little Evian sprays with me to spray my face!!!!! Getting hot just thinking about it ๐Ÿ˜จ

  • Thanks Dawn, sorry to hear you were feeling unwell but massively impressed that you did it in the end, and loved it so much!!!!! Definitely need your running in the heat tips though!๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ™ˆ

  • Just take some water with you and go slower......hopefully the heat won't last for long lol ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ xx

  • Plenty of water, plenty of sunscreen, don't go faster than you can handle and try and enjoy the sun on your back - think of all that lovely Vitamin D.

  • Thank you, I will keep on trying!!! ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž
