I was in Mombasa yesterday and decided to do my 8Km as scheduled. It wasn't that hot when I set out and in fact I enjoyed the first 4Kms then things went south pretty fast when the sun decided to give me an experience of what open-fire roasting is exactly.
I was losing a lot of body fluid in form of sweat but what curtailed my running was the sheer heat. My body was heating up faster than it could dissipate the heat. I tried rubbing my hands but I was on fire. It felt like my organs were on fire too. My body was too hot I felt like an oven so I had to stop after about 6Kms. It was hell.
But I am glad I was true to my schedule and I did my run.
Today is day 9. On the track.
