Well it feels like summer has arrived. As a runner, I definitely shouldn’t complain because it’s great to be able to go out in a t-shirt and shorts pretty much any time without worrying that it will be too cold. If you want to do a lot of miles, the best bet is to get some in early in the morning before it gets too hot so you can enjoy a more modest run in the heat of the day.
This is what I did today; Helen and I had a great run along the canal and back, topped with the extreme climb through Rothwell Country Park to get home. Doing that after running 8 miles in 22 degrees Celcius is “character building”.
I’m so proud of Helen that she can do all that and keep going; we are so fortunate to be able to go running together and share these challenges. If you use the WAVA system for assessing running performance based on your sex and age, she’s doing a lot better than me at the moment so I have work to do.
