Making things hot

In this hot weather, I’ve been out running in a fleece, just to try and replicate the 40+ degrees that its likely to be in Morocco for Marathon des Sables. 

I tried to make a time lapse video of some rowing training that I did in a warm conservatory but it didn’t work well. 

Instead it’ll just have to be this before and after photo. 7800m in 30 minutes at about 42 degrees. Good threshold training. I weighed my t-shirt when I took it off, 1kg which I reckon is about 800g of sweat lost in half an hour. Hydration is going to be key in the desert!
