I suppose it's not really a surprise but my run today after some spontaneous drinking at a street festival last night was not a fantastic success😰 It started with me getting up too late. The temperatures were already in the mid-20s, it was muggy and the slight headache lurking round my temples told me running was not a good idea. I found myself longing for rain (terrible isn't it!) and kept looking at the thermometer. At about 4 pm my husband basically told me to go out and run, as I was obviously far too restless. "It's quite windy" he claimed "that'll cool you down". It was still 24C, but I let myself be persuaded. No, the wind did not cool me down. It was clear at about 3k that I wasn't really going to be doing great things today. I ran/walked a bit more to about 5k and then conceded, switched off runkeeper, slowed to a walk and thought "oh, well, walking is good exercise aswell, at least I'm getting out!". Walking back through the trails and fields I took a few pictures of my route. And after about 9k of running and walking I returned to a somewhat nervous hubby. "I was just going to send out a search-party" he said, so obviously I do run faster than I walk!
Lessons learned: drinking the night before a run is not good. And 24C is still too warm for a decent run (for me anyway). But any exercise is better than none!
