Found this really difficult today even though I’d run for 20 mins the week before with relative ease. Makes me wonder if I’ll be able to step up to 25 mins. How is everyone coping with this heat?! I have to run in the morning as if I left it until the evening I’d come up with an excuse. I’m not running until 10 so it’s quite hot when I finish- I’ll have to start earlier. Struggling a bit!!!
Week 6 run 2- hot hot hot: Found this really... - Couch to 5K
After 8:30 is too hot for me at the moment. I try and get out as early as possible, still sticking to shade where I can. Sun is hot even in the early morning.
Have found a hat or head sweat band helpful at the moment. Plus I always take a big bottle of chilled water to drink and pour on my face when necessary!
Hi, you’ll be able to manage it, as you’ve come through the programme so far. 🙂 Just concentrate on taking it nice and steady. You’re not going to break any records in this weather! 😀
We all struggle in the heat, so don’t worry about it. Just make sure you keep hydrated, especially on non-running days.
Good luck and keep running 🏃♀️
I was exactly the same today. I did W6R1 this morning at around 9am. Usually go out a bit earlier when it's cooler and was completely overdressed in leggings and a long sleeved top! Made it much more difficult. I found this run the hardest out of any of them, which I didn't expect. Good luck with R3. I'm right behind you!! 😀
