W6R2

Struggled in the heat after choosing a Sunday morning lie in over a 6am run - big mistake! Really struggled in the heat and the gradient this morning. However, I didn't stop and finished my two ten minute runs.

W6R3 will definitely be done pre 8am or 8pm though in the cool, lesson learnt !

Well done! I went out yesterday at 10.30 a.m. and regretted it.

Yes, was a tad hot yesterday too - beetroot red I was! 😅

This is the first time I've sported the "beetroot" look !

Not a good look - especially with the sweat dripping 😂😂😂

Me too. Beetroot red with cap stuck to head with the sweat urghh,,,

I was pouring water on my head to cool me down! Had a lovely cold shower when I got home and chugged down loads of water!

I also struggled with the heat today

I always run between 6.30 and 7.30 to avoid getting too hot. Don't think I'd make it in the heat 😅

Make the most of it, I doubt there will be too many times in the year that we will be worrying that its too hot.

Besides sweating is good for the skin!
