A new factor for me this past week has been the heat. I have never run in temperatures this warm and if I wasn't doing a fundraising challenge I wouldn't dare to. Running in heat makes you feel like you have run double the distance you have. Everything gets heavy and you swallow many bugs.

I ran from Kop Hill in Princes Risborough, passed through the boundaries of the Chequers Estate, up to the monument at Coombe Hill and back to Kop Hill.

I crossed over to the other home county of Oxfordshire. My run took me from Goring to Whitchurch and back in the sweltering heat. Thankfully the woodland provided some much needed shade when needed, however the open field and roads were boiling hot to run on.

Thank you again to all who have sponsored me so far. At the end of this week I will reach the halfway mark (500km) and my dehydrated body may get to run in some cooling showers. I also look forward to entering June as I run two more major racing circuits; Rockingham and Donington. I cant wait to blog about them :-)
