Decided to try a different route tonight which included some rougher terrain and more inclines, really struggled in the heat, it was 32 degrees and half way round, in the middle of a wooded area I thought I was going to pass out...decided I needed some walk breaks to recover, ended up doing my longest distance but don't think it was smart in this heat, think I'll leave my next push until it cools down a bit !
Not a smart move : Decided to try a different... - Couch to 5K
32C is 90 degrees Farenheight, no wonder you struggled so much in the heat. They say that tomorrow Friday is to be called FURNACE Friday, this is because the temperature in East Anglia, south-east and some parts of southern areas of England including London is to go up to near 100F 38C, not good weather for running.
Good lord! I can’t imagine how everyone is coping in the rest of the country. We are generally 10 degrees cooler here and even then i have to get up at 5.30 to run - so i don’t expire! (It’s pretty humid by the sea so always feels hotter than you would expect from the temperature). I don’t consider running in more than 16 degrees - but you did it in 32...?! I take my straw hat off to you!
Wow doing your longest distance is a great achievement for today and in that heat! So congratulations to you. Enjoy your rest day(s)! I think it’s sensible not to push too hard and adjust as needed in these climates! We can only try to make every run a fun run!! But sometimes the elements stack against us! But you did tackle it! Go you!! ❤️
