It. Is. Just. Too. Hot 😫

I made myself get out the door at 6.30am because I talked myself out of it last night ~ because it was just too hot πŸŒžπŸ’¦ Well guess what, it was still too hot at 6.30 this morning; I only managed 20minutes (and that had a 1minute break) - have to be honest I felt there was a teeny sense of "all dressed up and nowhere to go!" πŸ™„ But at least I went out ~ just came back quickly πŸ˜‚ Tomorrow I will don my ice towel sur la tΓͺte ~ who knows what could happen... πŸ€“

Well done for going. I’m due to do a 3k tomorrow and I’m looking sceptically at the forecast for tomorrow!

Thanks Jay 😊 Be careful out there ~ no Vaseline! You may fry! 😱

It is too hot! I was out at 5.30 to try and beat the heat. Problem is it’s dangerous if you leave it too late. Well done for doing what you could without harming yourself! 😎

We went out last night around 6 and I found it so hard!!!! I did 20 mins but every step was so tough, just felt completely drained and couldn't wait for it to be over. Must say I too am looking forward to some coolness. I had done 30 mins on Sunday morning and it was cooler then and I really enjoyed that one, I am deffo a morning runner. Roll on Autumn πŸ‚

You just need to move up north we have cool now but still the first to declare a hose pipe ban. What's wrong with a flannel, never mind this ice towel malarkey. Keep on running as little or as much as you can.😎

Runningroni get with it! 😝 A flannel?? πŸ˜‚ Ice towels are all the rage ~ all the ... errr.... 50+ year olds are using them! πŸ˜‚ Flannels are so last year πŸ™„

RunningroniGraduate in reply to Flaraflarkin

I consider myself duly told . Will look for the ice towel but I may still take the flannel to mop the perspiring brow. I never was a dedicated follower of fashion.

Good for you for going out in the heat Flara! Of course we still want to enjoy running. It’s not going to be inspiring if it’s torturous! There’s no harm done if it’s just not happening due to the heat. 20 mins is a solid run!! Well done you!! ❀️

Thanks Fabulous450 yeah I'm pleased I at least did something, I'm certainly not going to push myself to melting point! 😊
