This morning was my first ever park run and boy was it hot!
It was a 5 minute walk from the car park to the start line so used that as my warm up and then did some light stretching before the start. I then started my 28 minute running with the start of the run.
The first 1 and 2k went by so quickly, I was well into my audiobook and wasn't really even noticing the heat or breathing too much!
2-3k was a bit more challenging as the 21 degree heat started to set in, I was running in direct sunlight which wasn't fun at all and felt myself lagging. Kept pushing through though and made it to the 3k marker.
Then, the section to the 4k mark is all on a slight incline in the sunshine and I tried to power through but needed to *whispers* have a 30 second walking break to have some water.
After the water break I felt so much better and ran the entire rest of the 5k feeling amazing!
Finished in 35:35 which I'm SO pleased with!!
Even though I had the small walk break, I'm moving on to W8R3 I think!!
