No worries from the running side of summer. Summer is better than winter, and spring is better than autumn. Today's run will almost be classed as a rest day. An easy run down to the river from work, a proper swim as in a few strokes to the other side, twice.
The worries started last week when the air conditioning at home wouldn't start on Monday. Worked fine the night before. The first few days of last week had top temps in the high 30s. We contacted the repair guys, who came around a couple of days later, temps had returned to mid 20's by then. Found that the capacitor ( the starter ) had failed. Ok, get new one and install on Friday. All is good. Of course the weekend weather was mild, only needed the air con to cool the house before going to bed.
Today, the capacitor decided to catch fire and has completely destroyed our air conditioner, the outside part.
Just a blackened shell. RS as they say. A discussion with the repair guys tomorrow as to who pays for what.
Hope the weather cools down soon, could be a long hot summer, might have to camp at the club overnight, next to the bar.
