Runner's Kryptonite: running during a heatwave

running during a heat wave
It's too hot!

I pride myself for not having missed one single run during the cold, and icy winter. I ploughed my way through the snow, and tiptoed over icy roads. Triumphantly I said to my husband:

'I'm tough, I'm cool, and above all: I'm weather proof!'

So you can imagine my surprise when hígh temperatures turned out to be my personal kryptonite!

I just couldn't run anymore

It all started last Sunday when I had to walk the last miles home, because I had hit The Wall. My body simply refused to keep running! All it agreed to do was walk home, and that was only because it wanted to lie down on the couch.

This is not the runner I want to be! The runner I want to be alwáys finishes her runs running. Luckily the runner that I ám is very determined, and doesn't know the word 'quitting'. So knowing my personal kryptonite is high temperatures, I decided less clothing would certainly be more, and I allowed myself to run at a slower pace.

And it seems to be working.

Kind of.

What is your personal kryptonite as a runner?
