I ran today! Woo hoo!
OK- so it was very hot, at about 25 degrees, and very humid which is not something I need to deal with every day! So, my run was very slllloooooow and pretty short as a result. But I did it!
It actually felt great, to get out and stretch my legs, since I hadn’t run since Friday. Except for the sticky suncream. Yuk. Factor
1,000,000 30 since I burn as soon as the sun appears, even if I’m only out for, maybe, 30 seconds 😉
Run: 3.5 mile recovery jog
Time: 35:37 slow and steady
Trainers: Free Run +3
Weather: bright and very sunshiny!
Best running track of the day: Hey Boy, Hey Girl, Chemical Brothers:
As it was a short run, I decided to wear my free run +3s. I only wear these for really short runs, as I much prefer my lunars for longer runs.
Here are my fabby coloured free runs:
And here’s a wee pic of my Nike trainers:
As you can see, I quite like a wee splash of colour! I do like to keep my trainers in rotation, to extend their wear and to make sure they’re in decent condition next time I run in them.
Tonight @thewelshwookie and I are toasting Andy Murray’s success having cracked open this beauty:
Today’s life lesson: whenever you take a day off, your workload is always waiting for you, including a couple of surprise challenges! For me today, that’s gone for both work and running!
Which suncream do you use when you run on sunny days?

I’m the same, this heatwave has been killing me!
We really shouldn’t complain, but as ever, I’m never happy with the weather! 😀
Its not been a good year for running weather, we had lots of snow and ice in the winter, now it looks like we’re going to have a scorcher of a summer. You can tell the runners from the non runners because we’re complaining about the heat.
It’s been exactly that- with little in between! Maybe we’ll be blessed with a fabulously long, cool-but-dry autumn 😉
