Don't know if it's heatstroke or if I've been affected by "taper madness" to that great an extent that I've started hallucinating!!
It's bloody typical. Nearly through May and after a year, so far, that can be best described as "crap" the weather takes a turn for the scorching. Expect all the Sunday papers tomorrow to have pictures of corpulent Brits tucking into ice-creams or young ladies in bikinis, all accompanied by "Britain Bakes" and "Phew! What A Scorcher" type headlines.
Spare a thought however for those daft enough to run 26.2 miles in it after training in somewhat cooler conditions. Spare a moment too to ponder the wisdom of setting off those who are running 13 miles at 8:00 in the relative cool of the morning. While those doing the full 26 get the fun of hanging about till 10:00 - just to make sure the sun's really out!
