Oomph it's been hot and humid in Sydney lately. Tonight was no exception, 27 degrees and 85% humidity at 6pm.
I had planned to get out at lunch for a run but an emergency came up with a mate that required a shoulder some burgers and a glass of wine. I'm a good friend 😝
Knowing it would be harder to get motivated once I was home and near the fridge, I donned my running gear for the bus ride home and hit the bay run as soon as I was home.
It was one of those runs that's just tough from the outset. I really had to push hard just to get under 5:30ks by half way round I thought my arms were going to fall off. Yes arms not legs! Strangely the legs were ok but the arms and upper body felt three times their weight. It was frustrating and irritating me as was the hot humid air I was sucking in. But sucking in and up I did and got the 8k loop from home done in a decent time.
Catching my breath in the back yard sweet was pouring off of me like I'd just come out a sauna. Bonus is I'm pretty sure that glass of wine has been sweated put my system so there's definitely room for another one with dinner!!
