I’m still recovering from my run this afternoon… It was so tough, definitely the hardest one by far. The aim was to run 9k and not to worry about time, just to go slow… I did manage the 9k, but there was some walking in between - 7minutes to be precise. Think it took me over an hour.
Today has been glorious sunshine, I’ve been out in my summer dress and flip flops eating ice cream. I had thought by 5.30pm the temperature would have cooled, but unfortunately not. The weather was 29C (which is about 84F for you Americans) - that’s just too hot for me. Foolishly didn’t bring any water with me either - so also not ideal. I should have been more prepared!
Next week is the big 10K race - 1 more kilometres than today. I’m hoping for an overcast day for the race and will be stocking up on liquids before and during the race. Fingers crossed it won’t be as hard as today’s run.
Will be interesting to see how I feel tomorrow. I’m leaving now for a Polish dinner at a friend’s house, maybe vodka with help my tired limbs?
