I feel like I'm in slow motion mode since the Yorkshire Marathon. I left 2 days later to the tropics, so I blame the heat! I have been running in 30c in 90% humidity, anyone tried that?? I just can't 'run' in such conditions, a short slow jog feels like a marathon, and the sweat just pours out from every pores, I mean, I had beads of sweat from my legs, I don't normally get that!
Sorry for the late response, I did it in 3:35:51 Hans C & Angela, that's a 15 minute PB, which I surprised myself! Hans C, we may have been running together for a while near the 3:30 pacer!! Love your report, especially the camaraderie element!
Angela, my next race is this Sunday, a 10.2km I know, why can't they move the finish and get it down to 10k??) run in Penang, Malaysia, where I am now! I'll be back in time in sunny Leeds for the Leeds Abbey Dash though...are you doing that?
No run for me tomorrow, as I'm 'tapering' for my 10k the next day . I need the taper, as it will feel like a marathon in this heat. It's actually my niggly knee that is telling me to rest tomorrow, as it felt like giving way this morning...The run starts at 7am, so at least I have the rest of the day to recover
Have a great weekend all!
