Just a gentle reminder to everyone.
If you are going to Europe or live In Europe be careful with the heat.
In parts of the UK it is hot and getting hotter tomorrow, take care in these conditions.
I have just come back from my run and cut it short at 2.5km. I have had a stressful week, not sleeping and it is hot and we also have a very high pollen count here today, when I get hay fever it Inflames my arthritis. So half way through my run I just thought if I carry on I’ll push on into an injury and one run is just not worth that.
I know as you are going through C25k the thought of missing or moving a run can be daunting thing but put your health before your run. If the conditions are not right, defer the run. The C25k plan is so flexible it will just move with you.
The French Minister of health has highlighted the dangers of those jogging in the midday sun at temperatures over 40 degrees and I have to agree with her. That sort of heat can be dangerous to run in and as much as we are all runners on here (all of us) we have a responsibility to ourselves to know when not to run.
Be safe and happy runnning when you do 😀
Ps, The hydration post, keep yourselves hydrated in the heat 😀
