Sister couldn't run tonight. So solo run on the railway line with husband following with his binoculars. He's a bird watcher. Was so so so hot. Mid twenties at 8.45pm. I had two of my lovely new cool towels with me. One around my neck and down my back and one for general mopping of sweat! They really are very cool! Been wearing one all day in different ways to see which works best.
So I set off intending to do just 20 mins as I could barely breathe in the hot horrid air. And went off really fast for me and kept going for the 20 mins! Did 2.5km and am pleased I can run a bit faster if I want to. No way I could sustain that pace for 5k though! A one off!! I'm a snail by choice. I didn't feel I could look around and enjoy the run....
The cool towels stayed cool. They kept my neck cool and I ended up with the other one on my head! As long as they are wet they are cool!
The price has dropped again on Amazon. Ordered three more yesterday for my mum! Bargain!!
