So I'd decided to run at 6am before work. Not too hot, a lovely way to start my day..? Then the football went to extra time. I don't particularly like football but it's the World Cup.. but I can't watch extra time! Just too stressful.

So I decided to do my run. The sun had gone down and it felt slightly cooler... went to the Common as it's just a 5 min walk from my house and off I went. It's all on grass and there are long gentle inclines and then long gentle downhills.

The first ten minutes nearly killed me. I was going so slow but it was so hot. Long incline to the top of the Common... every bit of me ached! I almost gave up but didn't. Slowed down even more. Then turned into a lovely long downhill with a lovely breeze!! All was fine from then. I actually ran for 35 mins, my longest yet by 2 mins. I will break no records for speed!! 🐌🐌🐌🐌🐌

And as I got in the door I had the penalties to 'watch'- I went into the garden to stretch and watch the bats and listen to all my neighbours cheering! Phew. ⚽πŸ₯…πŸ¦‡πŸ¦‡πŸ¦‡

Nice run!

I’ve sat through the football. I remember Italia β€˜90 very clearly. Glad to see that curse broken.

I just find England so stressful to watch! I prefer cricket. England lost that match tonight!

Too hot for me to be honest but if I wait for cooler weather, won't run at all!

It sounds like you’re doing really well. You should be so proud well done. I’ve not run in ten days. Keep putting it off in this heat. Not sure I will get back to it. Wasn’t enjoying running but well done you. Great stuff x

Well done, it was so hot, you did well.
