My plan to run Sunday evening didn't materialise. I'd forgotten the MotoGP was on amd as it was coming from the US it didn't finish until about 8 pm and I still had to walk the dog!
So I reverted back to my norm and went out this evening as soon as I finished work. I really struggled to complete 5K. One factor I think was the heat, the other a nasty insect bite on my lower leg that I've reacted to. I have a hard, red lump about 2 inches in diameter on the outside of my leg just below the knee. It's burning up, itching and throbbing. I think its also going to blister.
