14km - Long Run (plus A quick parkrun too!)

in EXHAUST2 months ago

dannewton just finished a 14.13km run, that lasted for 98 minutes.
This run helped dannewton burn 1549.5 calories.

Description from Strava: Well, I had being saying I'd be doing it it for the last couple of weeks and today I went and did it... I ran the whole way!

usually I walk part of the way.

I set of at 8:30 this morning, aiming to arrive at Boultham Park just before the parkrun started. I tried to keep a slow and sensible pace as I knew I would be running for about 90 minutes (definitely not wanting to over do it too soon!). I plodded down the hill and through the streets to get to the park. I was worried I was going to be late but as I entered the park one of the marshalls told me of a short cut to get to the start line quicker.

In the end I needn't have worried, and I had about 7 minutes spare. I heard nearly all the announcements, which were mostly people reaching various milestones, and then he reminded us to 'take it easy as its getting warm'. It was about 20C at this point, and it was only going to get hotter.

As the event got underway I made a conscious decision to stay near the back to keep a slower pace, partly because of the heat but mostly because I was running further than usually today, and wanted to make sure I completed the whole run relatively comfortably.

Even so I couldn't help having brief moments of speed and overtaking slower runners... it just feels good when I run at a faster pace. Once again, coming into the final stretch I made an effort to finish strongly. As I'm writing this I've just received my Parkrun time of 31:01. That was slower than last week which was intentional.

After a quick 30 secs to stretch and loosen up, I set of for home. By this point the heat was noticeable, but as I knew i would be indoors with a cold drink within 30 minutes, wasn't concerned.

When l made it home I decided on a quick shower (I was literally dripping with sweat) and then a cold drink and a protein bar. And now I'm gonna head out for a walk to play some Pokemon Go (it's one of the community day events).

Rest assured I will be sticking mostly to the shade!

It's only about 20 degrees at the moment in the UK? Here in Belgium we're "suffering" a heat wave. Allthough for me it's more "enjoying" than "suffering" !LOL !PIZZA

lol, it was 20C at 9am (eventually it was 31C on Saturday).

Its not has hot as it was a few weeks ago (at 40C). How is it in Belgium? I know everywhere in Europe is still hot, but has it cooled down a little since the last couple of weeks?

And more importantly, have you actually had any rain?

To be fair, I enjoy the heat too (as long as I'm not working in it!)


In Belgium they're calling this a heat wave too. We're having temperatures around 30 degrees I think. Somehow it was hotter than I thought. Saturday 6 p.m. I had to wait in the sun for my tickets and it was burning hot indeed. Today we've been running but not possible to compare to the previous days since it got a lot more hunid. At about 50 km from where we were it has been raining. But I didn't even see the clouds... !LOLZ !CTP

30 degrees Celsius sounds cool enough for people living in hot countries. 😏 High humidity makes the heat "feel" hotter. 😅


I wouldn't call 30 degrees "cool". Rather "supportable"... !PIZZA !CTP

If it isn't "cool", then maybe you mean "acceptable" or "tolerable". 🤔🤓 Anyway, in hot countries, 42 degrees Celsius is sometimes the average temperature during the dry season. 😏

Yeah its hard work in the sun lol, I'm sticking to the shade here wherever I can find any!

Some of the rain is really hit and miss. We've just had a thunderstorm near here, the nearby village got soaked, and we didn't get anything! Fingers crossed we get some rain tomorrow, just for some variety! The relentless heat is getting a bit boring haha

I can't believe you're writing that. I really get enough quickly from the rain. Today we left Belgium in the rain and actually arrived in Palma with rain too... I alrady had enough from it !LOL
