Going somewhere slowly is better than going nowhere fast.
Training on Monday: Running a slow 6k earlier were Ruth, Ewen & me, then joining us for hill intervals were Andrew, Bronia, Garry, Kat, Kylie, Matt, Neil, Noelene, Tim, Victoria & Yelena. It was too hot for a long intense session, 38 degrees, so we selected a shaded hill to run on, and did two set of 9 sprints with a drink/cold water break at the half way mark. Most runners myself included had extra breaks trying to rehydrate. There were no casualties. But any hotter and I will cancel training and find a swimming pool and some cold beverage.
