14C-17C, sunny and warm. A 15 mile run. Did some DIY on Saturday which left me with all sorts of aches and stiffness today; mainly troubled by stiff hamstrings and glutes. Took it steady and it was a training run on tired legs, good practice for the marathon.
Had 3 gels and 500ml water. There was a cool breeze from the north west on parts of the route but the heat contributed to me getting fairly dehydrated. Noticed raised HR on return, linked to heat/hydration I think. Kept it going though and finished tired but not destroyed.
Garmin watch is on its last legs, the adapted watch strap broke, making it flap about on the return. Need to try superglue or something else to keep it working for a bit longer.
