It's hot!

It's so hot that a glass of whole milk with ice and a big pinch of salt is almost unbearably blissful. It is not 5 mile run weather. I feel I could drink a lake dry.

Um, I guess the point I'm trying to make is do NOT 'nip' out for a run that you know will be beautiful and seduce you into extra distance if you're not carrying water. I have actual sparkly salt crystals on my face from sweating.

I went out this morning hoping it would be a good time because we had a bit of rain last night. Wrong! The humidity was brutal. After 1km I was a proper sweaty betty. By 5km I had just about had enough. You're right MissW sweat in the eyes stings!! I walked for a couple more km but that was it. I feel completely worn out now
