Last night I tweeted / blogged about “the rain” (to be pronounced in an ominous voice…).
A few people got back to me telling me to brave it commenting that once your out running its not a problem. So today I took that advice and immediately retreated back inside. Only joking. I went to my local 5k Parkrun in the rain and after running a 23:18 I returned home looking like the monster from the Black Lagoon. Muddy is an understatement.
So in response to those comments last night. I agree. Its not that bad when your out in the rain. Dress appropriately and it shouldn’t be a problem.
The downside… I now have to clean my trainers (volunteers welcome).
To reward myself for my triumph over Mother Nature. I enjoyed a Starbucks with a Jam and Coconut Sponge. Wow. Just wow.
Tomorrow I’m hoping to run over 10k for the first time in 3 months. Wish me luck (or sunshine)…
