The course felt like a steam bath! Temperature 30 degrees here today, maybe less at 8:00am but felt more like 130 on the cycle/walking track surrounded by acres of wet grass in the surrounding low lying paddocks. Until now, I haven't been able to stomach even a drink of water, let alone my much loved cuppa! From hereon, I have to accept that I cannot risk running on days with high temperatures and humidity. Just can't do it!
So here is this morning's awful attempt at Bowral Parkrun #15 ~~~~~
