Incredibly hot tonight. Although it was 5.30pm it was still around 90c when I set of and I wondered if I would complete. I was tempted to give up after a mile as this felt as hot as when I ran the Norwich half marathon but it was that thought that if I can complete this kind of distance then there should be no problem running 5 miles in this heat.

On the radio today somebody claimed that this kind of temperature will be a cool day in England come the end of the century. I won't be around but you do hear these theories a lot either the coming of the ice age or global warming. The facts are though that average temperatures are increasing each year and these means runners will need to get used to running in heat.
