Man it is hot here. Low humidity, about 50% and only 30 C, about 87 so really it should not be that interesting of a problem. In fact it is/was. Started nicely very relaxed, but of course trying to weave my way around the roads to find all the shade. At least that occupied my time. Also made some effort to follow my breath and see where that led me.
It felt hot, but it also felt very nice to be putting one foot in front of the other. About half way I climbed that big hill and that really seemed to take some steam out of me. I had 241 BS before the run and took 1.5 units, by about 11 k I felt I needed to take a GU, and did. I didn't have any water with me however so it was like having a blob of goo without anything to dilute it.
I really felt like I struggled to get it home, yet overall I was going much quicker than I thought I was. Yet another reason to just have the experience and not attach phrases to any of it.
Finished up and it appear that I lost 4 kilos of water weight, that seemed a bit dangerous. We'll see how the rest of my day goes. But I've certainly drunk a lot of water so far.
Impermanence, each run and each breath is different in some way.
