On what was a glorious day, the increase in temperature was always going to be felt at some point. For me it was the 3rd mile, and given that I was running at a pace some way below my fastest, underlines how much warmer it has become in the last few days.
I find every year at this time I suffer initially with the increasing temperatures; thankfully, I acclimatise quite quickly. Now the football season is drawing to a close I’m hoping to attend my local Parkrun a little more regularly on a Saturday morning.
My time was 26.19. Training-wise, I think things are going well. I feel really positive regarding my chances of improving my times from last summer. A better indicator of where I am will come this Saturday if I’m able to attend.
