Too hot to handle

...and there I was, stepping out of the door, at 6.45 am with the direct intention of running 15 miles with George. We had made plans that we were to run along a route that was primarily shade due the promise of strong sunshine and high temperatures later.

I knew as soon as I started running that it was not going to be an easy one and soon imagined that I looked Arnold Ridley in Dad's Army as I tottered and stumbled up my first hill towards the meeting point.

It was almost bearable in the shade but quite horrible in the direct sunshine even at 8.00 am so today was a very easy run with no pressure with time as it would have been foolhardy to try anything fast.

Good to see George back on the trails after his 2 week forced break and to hear how pleased he was to be back running as a centurion.
