Late afternoon in a hot Sydney town. It peaked at 38 degrees on the coast today but was 31 degrees when I headed out a 4pm. Still hot so I headed for the only place with heaps of shade, Centennial Park. Did a few different loops in and around the park sticking to the grass/sand/dirt most of the time. Just trying to stay out of the sun. Thankfully the cloud cover started to come over about 5pm.
I was cooked at the end and a bit sunburnt even though I put heaps of cream on.
Ran 35.12ks in 3:13:57. Average pace of 5:31 per klm. It was a bit slow but it was all on grass and I had a bit of heat to deal with. The wind blowing was warm so it didn't help much.
At least I can get a drink in the park every couple of ks which stopped me dehydrating.
A good run anyway. Hopefully next weekend is a bit cooler.
