So you can imagine my surprise when hígh temperatures turned out to be my personal kryptonite!
It all started last Sunday when I had to walk the last miles home, because I had hit The Wall. My body simply refused to keep running! All it agreed to do was walk home, and that was only because it wanted to lie down on the couch.
Then it happened again, after watching Kate Middelton and Prince William getting married. I felt quite touched seeing the ceremony, but also a bit jealous, so I decided to make a run for some peace of mind. But again, I had to walk home the last kilometer.
This is not the runner I want to be! The runner I want to be alwáys finishes her runs running. Luckily the runner that I ám is very determined, and doesn't know the word 'quitting'. So knowing my personal kryptonite is high temperatures, I decided less clothing would certainly be more, and I allowed myself to run at a slower pace. And it seems to be working.
What is your personal kryptonite as a runner?
