I have to say, running in the warm weather is a bit of a challenge. You really need to be careful not to overdo it. Today I ran 11 miles in the sun, and I was using my heart rate as a check to make sure I wasn’t over doing it.
Good luck to the runners doing the Edinburgh marathon in that heat tomorrow. I don’t think I’d want to run an event in that weather!
