It’s very early and I’m running in shorts

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s rather hot here in the UK at the moment! The sunny weather is wonderful, it puts people in a good mood, we can wear pretty light floaty clothes, drink pimms and eat ice cream, but the downside…it makes even the mildest of exercise a lot harder and you sweat…a lot.

I’ve been keeping up with my running. If I don’t want to run I don’t, and when I do I only go as far as I feel like so I’m not exactly pushing myself…but it is so hard in this heat! Even a 10am run on a Saturday morning was a major struggle. So to get around this I had to focus on my before work runs…and start them even earlier! Its surprising how warm it already is a 5.45, but it is such lovely conditions to jog in!

I have been really enjoying these early morning jogs, it’s bright dry and on the best days there is a little breeze and as a surprising result of these warm morning runs I have discovered I LOVE running in shorts!!

I didn’t think that would happen…I was a fan of running tights because of the way they hold it all in but one morning when I couldn’t bare the thought of covering my legs up in the heat, my eyes strayed to the running shorts I had brought months ago but never actually worn. I thought ‘Why not, lets give it a go’…and I am so happy that I did. They are comfortable and cooling and I barely notice the thigh wobble! Horray!

What’s your favourite running gear?

Is the weather stopping you exercising or are you enjoying it more?

    Haha I had to buy shorts for the Color Run & was v nervous about wearing them, but there is no way I could’ve worn tracksuit bottoms…! Haven’t bought any running tights as I’m too scared I’ll look horrific in them :)!!
