Saturday's Run

Our weather is confused at the moment. Here we are in the middle of April so it should be the middle of Autumn and we have not yet had a day with temperatures below 27C. In fact this weekend the temperatures were up over 30 again. And not only were the temperatures up - the humidity had hit the roof. Yesterday's run was a disgusting sauna run. It was one and a half hours of solid sweating. I'm so over Summer especially now that it's not!

The awful conditions left me with a little surprise that I didn't find until I'd hit the shower. Apparently the undies I wore must be losing their elasticity and sweat isn't a particularly good lubricant. When they don't grab properly they rub and 16k's of rubbing = chaffing. And it was in a very sensitive area! (Note to self: Throw out the pink undies. It's time to go shopping)

But despite the ugly weather and the unwanted side-effects, it was a pretty good run. My heart rate was up a little but I'm pretty sure that was the heat/humidity. It's capped off a good running week. 46k's is the most I've done in six months. I'm happy!


  1. I am new to your blog. Hello.
    Now running in these temps and humidity totally impresses me. Gosh, I am such a wimp. I live in CA so during the summer I run EARLY in the morning even though our heat is dry.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you.
