I got a blister for the first time in years a couple of weeks back. I’ve tweaked the laces, but the toes felt funny this week. Strava tells me I’ve done 480km on those shoes, so I wonder if I too am approaching worn out shoes time.

later start as I was not working this morning.  5k done in 31.34.  Legs felt quite sluggish to start with as I pushed it on the ride home last night.  really hot out there already but no sign of rio or thunder.  Pilates now with my wife and then a shed to build.

A sluggish start is apparently quite normal so nothing to worry about. It usually takes me about 5 minutes to get into it.

I’ll submit my excuses now. It’s obviously too hot now to go out running and I couldnt go earlier because we are out with my daughter today and after Sunday’s session I have was banned from going. Honest.

Still feel twinges in my hip so no running, plus we have thunderstorms forecasted.

We are off to the Uk on Friday lunchtime so at this rate I won’t be back to running until next week Thursday.

For varying reasons amongst us a few days off is not a bad thing.  What is important is that we come back and continue.

I might well go for a swim instead tomorrow or Thursday.  And, I'll book a yoga or a pilates session.  All good stuff.

Looking at the forecast for the morning, I expect it will be too hot for me, even before eight.
I might do something very gentle, but not the full 5k up the hill I was aiming for.

Slow today.  Very hot and I had no go at all.  Still walk / run, but just over 50 minutes so nearly as slow as just walking. Day off tomorrow - I'm only really doing day off / day on to avoid blowing something up.  That may be it for this week: I have to ride to work on Saturday and Sunday, for the first time in 4 months, so that'll add 40 miles all told.

I had to walk today for two different commitments.   Given the oppressive heat I regard that as sufficient with a step count for the day nearing 13k.

I did see a young woman running in the heat.  She was quick but didn't seem to be enjoying the experience.

I decided it was far too hot for running this morning, because I overslept, because I didn't sleep well, because it was too hot last night.

So I went for a bike this afternoon instead, at least you get a bit more breeze that way albeit today's breeze was a bit like a hair dryer.

The sky went sort of purple and there was a noticeably cooler breeze at about 8, so I declared it “easy run” day and went for a flat 5km and kept it in zone 2. The hoped for soaking didn’t happen, but I feel better for it.

I’ve got the joy of a 300 mile drive today, so it’ll be another 'rest' day for me. I’m quite jealous of those of you who Are managing g to fit runs in around this oppressive weather.

At least the car has air conditioning.

I too am envious of those who can manage a run in these sweltering conditions.

Looking at the forecast I hope to rise on Saturday and stagger along the local Sustrans trail for an early 6k to get myself back into some sort of a routine.

I have just been chatting with my yoga teacher by txt.  Classes resume in a very socially-distanced way on Tuesday for me.  Very happy about that.
