Heat Wave Striking On The Day Of London 2 Brighton
Hey cunts, I’m doing my best rain dance at the minute.
I’m becoming increasingly worried about London 2 Brighton. The weather forecast continues to get warmer by the day. It’s now up to 28C for this Saturday. I hope this is the peak and the forecast drops back a little. Even at 25c I might have to run topless and I wouldn’t be happy with that as my chest is just tits, stretch marks and old Haribo.
I don’t want to run and fail to finish. If the weather gets even hotter then I think I’ll ask if I can switch to a 50k. This feels like a cop out, but I don’t want to drop out for the 3rd time in a row.
I don’t want to die of heat stroke either. If I collapse due to the heat then I likely won’t be able to do the Land’s End to John O’Groats challenge. Hopefully we get lucky and it cools a bit.
I’m a Northerner, 6 foot 3 and I sweat like pig. I suffer a lot in the heat.
The good thing about my LEJOG is that I can run very early in the morning if the weather is hot. If I have to set off at 4am with my headlamp on looking like the depressed ghost of an old coal miner then I am happy to do that.
I want to run the 100k but not at all costs. This time last week the forecast was reading 18C for the Saturday. There’s still time for it to change drastically.
Gonna keep doing my rain dance until someone upstairs listens. I’ve been looking forward to this event for ages and the last thing I want to do is to turn up at the start line completely bollock naked to try to counter the heat.
