Ran at 12.15 today and it was 27c!
Felt like I was melting when I stopped!
:cool:
More ice cream than running weather (shame I seem to have so many races lined up)

Just trying not to complain at present... it was just 2 weeks ago and I was wondering if that pesky wind and rain was ever going to end...

Just out of interest...

Does anyone know how heat effects race times for the average pale-and-pasty-used-to-UK-gloom-and-rain-type runner? I'm trying to work out how much of my slow 10km on Sunday I can blame on anything but me.

(Before anyone gets upset - I hope this question causes no offence - I am not intending this in any way as a racist or xenophobic question - but I think it is true that peeps acclimatised to different parts of the world will react differently to different temperature ranges - e.g. Craig Mottram last weekend was no doubt very happy - and maybe faster - with the Ozzie-like heat here in London)
