Overheating during runs!

Posted: 05/05/2015 at 11:41

Agree with all.

One thing. You started training in the colder months, and we have had unseasonal warmer weather on and off in the past month.

I find that my body takes time to adapt to the warmer temps. So when it is April and warm, its v hard to run in warm weather. But, as the months go by, the body slowly adapts to the warmer weather, and it does get better. Come July, yes I do find it hard, but it is easier than when it was April.

Just stay with is, allow yourself to go a little slower when its warmer, and your body should get used to running in warm. Good luck!

Best way to progress as a beginner?

Yes, agree. You are running 2 miles - a short distance - but too fast... increase your mileage gradually, and give yourself permission to run slower than you think you should. Good luck. x

At long last

Good luck with it xx

My HRM strap went once, and I tried to change the battery to no avail, I still would not pick up a signal.. I took advice for the net/ RW forum, and it said to put the battery upside down from its normal position, for a certain period of time (cannot remember how long, but it wasn't ages). Then put it in the correct way around.

I tried it, and it worked. It was something witchcraft-y to do with polarisation and negative fields or something like that. There was an explanation about it, but I couldn't understand it.

It worked that's the main thing... I have always found good advice re HRMs and watches on the RW forum/ other runners forums.

I know this may be wrong, but has the battery gone???????

I know they are rechargeable, but even rechargeable have a limited life.

Or try re-setting it, as per manufacturers instructions.

I got mine, two months ago or so, at £125 on Amazon... it was on special though. Re the bezel, I just lock mine, and its fine.

Dear, dear Mel..... yes the hills are mere dots, one step and you are over them.

I wish I could write a decent race report. I read everyones elses, and they are great. I can never find anything to say. I am going to have up my act. First next race = Ridgway, that gentle race with no up hills, HUGE downhill bits, nice soft under foot conditions. Not a rabbit hole in sight. And as for tree roots, well they have all been dug out and backfilled in readiness for the Gulpers. Then the toilets, well, they are like palaces, even the Queen would love them. And no stiles, far too diffcult to get over.

Maybe my illustrous career in race-reporting should be put on hold...

Good man.

Went out with Mr Vole today, he did 6.80 miles, me just 3.40 at about 10.20 pace. Quite tiring, but it was nice to so something reckless.

Toby... you arent fat.. cant be at your pace...
