Whoever wrote out the training plan to run long on a very warm day in summer at midday, needs to be sacked.
It was very warm today, and usually I don't have a problem with the heat. In fact, the temperature range was well within what I have been out in over the last few months. Just noticed it more, one of those days.
I was going to run from work and do the circuit of Tuggie Hill, but changed my mind, stayed closer to the river and drinking taps.
So, covered almost every trail between Point Hut and the top of Pine Is car park. It finished up being Ok, I certainly didn't push the pace at all.
Cooled off in the river at the end, very nice as usual. But the water level is dropping noticeably, plenty there, but it needs some rain upstream to get some good flow.
