Oh the humidity!

So where I live in what is pretty much outback Australia, it is often hot, but not usually humid! However, we had a thunderstorm last night (but very little rain), and I went for W8R3 this morning when it was still super muggy and still over 25 degrees. It was definitely the sweatiest run yet! And also the slowest - I legitimately could walk faster in some sections..... but the important thing is that it is done! Now for that extra pesky 2 minutes...

Oh my gosh, you're into graduation week already! Only 3 more runs. Make sure you do your cheek stretches in preparation (you will not be able to stop smiling for hour and hours). Really well done. Will be looking out for your next posts :)

I hear you on the humidity part & been heatwave temps in Sydney for what feels like forever now so early morning is best for me. I guess if we are to keep running after graduating we have to get used to getting out in all sorts of weather. Take care & water, water, water.

Hats off to you for completing this programme in heat like that. It feels like a struggle in the English summers so I have no idea how you cope with that humidity! Slow is good and sensible, you might have to save speeding up for the Aussie winter.

Enjoy Week 9! Keep us informed with how it goes! :)
