  • sensible approach keeping in the shade as much as possible good rec miles

  • A nice holiday outing have a fantastic holiday and a great birthday 🙂

  • sounds perfect rec run

  • Well done Sharon very sensible idea, for the last 2 years I’ve focused on shorter stuff and am enjoying my running a lot more plus I’m staying injury free

  • that’s a great 10 and I’m sure HR is raised due to heat, guess higher HR is an attempt by the body to keep the core temperature down

  • Nice recovery almost as hot as it is here in the UK 🙂

  • That’s a great double Chris this heat is crazy and I’m with you on the gallon or two lost 🙂

  • that’s 5 great miles Jo and the cool sounds just whats needed

      Only 29 degrees tonight! Glad I decided not to race! Steady 1st mile then even paced for the rest, around 40secs slower than what would have been my race pace if I had raced tonight. Splits 7.42,7.28,7.28,7.27,7.24 with overall average of 7.30m/m still dripping an hour later despite cold shower and plenty of fluids!

  • I’ve ran that one 3 times so know it well, saw photos of the birthday chap 🙂 Great support to your friend and lots of treats sounds a perfect 10k Trudy

  • yep crazy weather! sensible approach should ease the niggles I’m sure

  • cracking session MC well done

  • Very sensible approach rest is as important as training / racing no giving up onwards and upwards 🙂

  • just what was needed by the sound of it, nice and easy should sort the aches

  • A great weekend with a cheeky 10k included sounds great fun

  • A great run well done not easy out there today and not the easiest of routes

  • nicely paced training run Barry good luck with the race and that’s a hell of a way to cool down post run!

  • that looks amazing! Bet it was a tough route so that’s a great run well done

      30 degs at 6pm! So sensibly just a short progression run in the park, average HR up a touch due to the heat (146bpm) average pace 7.40m/m with splits of 7.45,7.40,7.37 and 7.28. Was intending to race tomorrow night, only a 4 miler, but due to heat expected higher decision is a No, probably just do a few gentle miles instead
