Well I started W9 on Monday and it went sooooo well. I didn't go fast but just my usual steady pace and I had no problems, except one and I hate to say it.....it was the sun!!
I know, I know, complaining for months about the crap weather and now it's here still complaining....lol. The problem was the same as others on this sight, winter clothing. OMG I was so hot....I tried to keep running in the shade which helped a bit. For the next run on Wednesday it will be t-shirt and shorts until I can buy some summer gear. I think I will also have to take a drink with me as I was so thirsty.
I think I will consider changing my running to mornings instead of evenings as I think they might be a bit cooler. I'm making it sound like it was tropical, but I only live in not so sunny Belgium..and it was only 17°c but that is such a huge difference compared to the last 2 months
On Sunday we went for a beautiful long walk (18km) with our walking club. The sun was out all day and the birds were so happy. Lots of signs of Spring finally. Today I swam 44 lengths which adds up to 5km in 5x50 because it took me 30mins. I am going to start the Strength and Flex programme to have an easier day on the challenge.....easier in terms of not so much leg work
Sorry for the long post....keep going all of you and enjoy the lovely weather
