So I finished the c25k programme 2 weeks ago. Hadn't made 5k in 30 mins but was going ok.
I then had a week off when I went on holiday. It was too hot for running, but did plenty of walking and didn't think that would affect me. So having started again this week was looking to make it to 5k.
However all my runs this week have been soooo hard. Worse than I remember the last few weeks being.
Went out yesterday, and had to give up at 4.9 k, although the end was in sight I really couldn't go on. My face was bright purple and I felt like death.
I started running in January, normally at night, but went out mid morning yesterday when it was 25degrees. And I am still a couple of stone overweight.
Do you think the extra weight affects you worse once the temperature goes up? My running buddy wasn't nearly as badly affected but she isn't as heavy as me.
Aside from (slowly) losing that extra weight I am carrying, does anyone have any advice on running in warmer weather?
