W9R1 - The Final Stretch!

Barely managed this earlier!! I find the heat makes it so much harder, so been trying to find as much shade as possible!

But it's done and only 2 runs until Graduation! Getting closer to 5K as well, I measured my run at 4.43KM but will retain the current pace until comfortable.

Going to try and plan the last 2 runs to be out of the heat if possible this week but it's going to be hard!!!

I’m wanting to go out tonight but it’s nearly 10pm and still 25 degrees! The weather was much milder when i started this journey! Are we the only person cursing the sun this summer? 😆

I have just completed W9R1 but I can only run if I go out early in the morning. I start at about 6.30 am and avoid the heat. I am so impressed by everyone who is running in the evening.

Mine was a lunchtime run Smarty! 😰 Going to try and be more sensible for the next two!

Wow. A week 9 run at lunchtime in this heat. That is awesome.
