Well I thought a morning run could just about be got away with, being the coolest part of the day on potentially the hottest day of the year so far. 9 days since my last run and I really just needed to get out. But my already surnburnt face and shoulders got even more burnt despite lashings of factor 30, and my festival-tired legs were certainly not up to speed. My pace was all over the place, managing 8:50 in the first km followed by 9:44 in the second, showing I was getting overtired, but I had two spurts where I really ran, one of which motivated by the sight of some shade up ahead on my route, the second at the end when I saw the finishing point coming up. So overall, my run was okay. 4.23km at 8:49min/k. But anyone else wondering whether to go out for a run today should definitely think twice. Despite drinking a pint of water before I went out I got a dehydration headache, and I think my sunblock got washed off my face with all the sweat! Recovering now before heading out for long day at college then work in sweaty London.
