Sweating Buckets

Was going to go running at 5am this morning but slept in. Ended up going at at around 12:30pm instead which was hot. Picked a route I had done last year through One Tree Hill (and up it). However there are plenty of water taps around in the park which I made good use of. The hill was fierce! Mind you the downhill was quite nice.

16.4km / 1:23:31 / 5:05min/km (last year was 1:23:30 - pretty much the same - but conditions today were hot and humid).

Had 2 water drink breaks the first at 6km and then again at 10.5km.

Best part of the run? Right at the end grabbing the garden hose, turning the water on full and cooling off.

Prefer the 5am stuff to be honest. That'll teach me for sleeping in....

We're not even allowed to use our hoses like that due to water restrictions, just to add to the 43 degrees.

I can't believe you went out at midday. Boy you are braver than me.
