Hottest day of the year?

Today is meant to be the hottest day of the year but it certainly isn't where I'm standing.  Up in the not so sunny depths of South Yorkshire the sun seems to have taken a holiday which wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact then everyone who emails me today is based in London and asking if I'm enjoying the sun.

Totally unfair !!

Of course the weather was bound to take a turn for the worse this week, why would it stay sunny when the Tour De France is set to head through town?  Instead of seeing Yorkshire as it's beautiful best, the rest of the world is going to see a drizzly grey countryside that isn't very appealing to anyone.  To be fair though these days that is what Yorkshire is like the majority of the time so maybe if it was sunny we'd be in trouble for false advertising to any future visitors.

One good thing about it being not hot though is that its easier to run when it's cooler.  I've decided to just work on sustaining the 10 minutes I can now run easily and then slowly build on that - today I pushed it to 11minutes and 16seconds.   And believe me those extra 16 seconds count, they were the hardest seconds of the whole run :)
