Clear Skys and a warm day called for more liquid to carry than expected. Good start on the greenway with a few cyclist out already.
Started off without socks but after 5k I could already feel hotspots so stopped to put socks on. The New Balance I bought for the run are a bit too small but I couldn't get a half size bigger in time.
It was going smooth until the halfway mark when I started to struggle in the heat and I body came to its limits quickly. I had to change strategy to a walk-run approach. It didn't help that my left hamstring started to cramp up. I was very conscious of my higher heart rate so I try to keep that in check until the end.
I am happy to make it to the finish and overall it was a great journey in a beautiful countryside.
