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.

Good point teafairy, best to take it and not use it, than be rasping, gasping and crystally! Good for exfoliation maybe? x :-D

When you get salty sweat running in your eyes it proper stings doesn't it!

Not been running at all in this recent hot spell due to being benched. Bah!


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
