The first few mild days each spring always feel warmer on a run than they actually are.

I hope you're right, it felt so hot today! Hopefully I will acclimatise.

I’m pretty sure it was 21 degrees at an early spring World Cup race in Portugal which felt like one of the hottest races I’d done! Some teams were using ice to keep cool..

I believe it Ness! I ran the Sheffield Half Marathon one year when it was 23 (in April) and everyone nearly died.

I had a whinge about a sunny 14 deg last week, wasn't sure what this foul sweating business was about.

First warm day of spring is often a challenge - I've crashed and burned in long races on 25-degree September days more than once.
