Had my first running failure on Monday doing W8R1.
I was off work and decided to go out at about 1pm. I'd never ran in the heat before (it was about 27C) and I was woefully unprepared.
My usual routine of drinking 2 litres of water in work the day of a run? Nope.
My usual banana about 30 minutes before for energy? Nope
Take a cap with me? Nope
Take water with me? Nope
Went out and was going at a good pace for me at 6:00/6:10 a km but knew I wasn't prepared and then at 21 minutes BOOM. Mouth like the desert, head swimming and had to walk the rest of the way. So stupid and I'm kicking myself for being so daft when I have a 5k run on the 28th and I'm so close to the end of C25K
Run 2 tonight and I'm going to nail it, weather is a bit cooler, I'm hydrating myself and definately not going to make the same mistake twice. WE GO AGAIN
