i have been running since sept2002 ,training for flm, which i completed
everything o.k since just usual stuff,black toenails etc.

in recent couple of weeks i have noticed my heart rate has increased,by 10-20% on my runs i feel fine otherwise
no temp or anything , im hoping that it is simply to do with heat time of year,as i havent run in heat of summer before,

any wise bod out there can tell me this is case?????

Was for me this morning

I hate going out when it's warm. As I have a horrifically high HR anyway - there's no reserve at all - so I ended up having to walk/jog a route which I ran round last Tuesday with no problems

phew! just back from a run, i ony comleted two thirds though. I thought i was alone suffering in the heat? H/R was a simmilar story. Anybody else find performance drop if not used to the heat??

I ran the sheffield marathon (full) today for the third time with the temps hitting well above 26c!! Although i managed a PB of 3hr14m, the general standed overall was much lower due to the heat (the race usually run in april)despite the fact there was more runners. The heat of summer plays a big part in performance and that is why there is much less longer runs at this time of year.

But scott
there are loads of marathons on at the moment

Full marathons Hippo??

We have got sheffield/Stoke/Blackpool/Isle of White to name a few i know of but after these it calms down in July/August due to the heat in these months which are generally to hot for full marathon running! In the months of April/May/September/October we are flooded with marathons all over the country due to the better temps at these times of year.

I thought you meant now, Scott

Cos as you say, there are a few on at the moment

Mind you, september can be pretty hot

I know what you mean about the heat, just went for a short run, usually can get to 4.5 miles OK and today struggled to 3. I was soaked in sweat and absolutly tuckered at the end. My legs feel like they have lead weights attached to them. I was taking in water all the way round it was so clammy and hot.
