Post grad run

A bit weird this one not having Laura talking me through. I set my timer on my phone , started my run playlist, activated Endomondo and set off.

God it was hot! I was resembling a glazed doughnut by the first ten mins and only managed 2.75 k in the 30 mins . A far cry from my graduation run on Sunday, but like they say, some runs are better than others.

Good on you for going out mate.... loving the glazed donut reference! made me lol!

Well done on just getting out there in the heat! It was my first morning without Laura too, and I’m missing her already! 😂❤️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️😎

Less distance doesn’t mean worse run.

How much did you enjoy it?

Weeeellllll I’m not born for the heat I’d rather be doing physical exertion in the cold so the actual run was so so. I’d normally be doofed on a bean bag in the garden in temps like that.

I realise I enjoy runs in the morning when it’s cooler and no ones about but I’m no morning person either!. Once I’ve dragged myself out of my pit and actually doing it I really enjoy it and have much more energy .

Also don’t enjoy inhaling flies!. I had a dream the other night that I could feel them bouncing about in my chest 😣.

Maybe I was having palpitations in my sleep !!

Well done you for getting out there and for completing in the heat! 🔥 🔥! Imagine the distance when it gets a bit cooler! That will no doubt be pretty great! ❤️

Looking forward to it!. Wondering now what it’ll be like in winter with the darkness and rain 🤔
