HOT AND BOTH­ERED

Runner's World (UK) - - Your World - Danny Law­son, Wal­lasey

I fi­nally joined my lo­cal run­ning club this June, just in time for the hottest July on record. I'm sure run­ners across the coun­try will agree the weather this sum­mer has been a chal­lenge, but run­ning with oth­ers has helped to keep me mo­ti­vated. So when I was talk­ing to my new club­mates about my up­com­ing hol­i­day to Spain, there was up­roar when I said I planned to leave my train­ers at home, to have a break. ‘You can’t do that,’ they told me. ‘Run­ning along the coast is one of the best bits about a hol­i­day.’ So I lobbed my train­ers in my suit­case and headed to the Calpe coast. I did at least log one ac­tiv­ity on Strava; the sweati­est, hilli­est mile of my life. I headed out at 7:30am in 30C heat; the only pos­si­ble route was up steep steps and rocks. It def­i­nitely wasn't ‘one of the best bits about be­ing on hol­i­day’. Never again will I cave in to peer pres­sure!
