Too Hot

38c today and 25c at 6:00am put any thought of a run firmly on ice – I hate the heat when running.

Took the boys to tennis and then the mother and father in law into the city for the “A Chorus Line” show which we bought them for Christmas.  Next stop was the bike shop for a quote on the bike wheels – seems I could buy a new bike for the cost of the replacements. It’s a great bike, it just needs some care and attention – need to to re assess

Home and thanks to Michelle –  she convinced (coerced/badgered) me to go for a run at the gym. 5K on the treadmill has always filled me with dread, there’s no landscape, hills, declines, air or distractions. Off to the gym at 2:00pm and 30 minutes later I finish in heap of sweat, 5K complete in a little under 30 minutes, not that the time is important anymore, hell I even had a chance to view my running style in the adjacent mirror – that’s running is it? I can’t believe how slow I looked, although I never thought of myself as fast, it’s just……Reality bites
