When I was in Dunoon today, I watched the storm clouds brewing:
And my first thought was, urgh!
You’d think I’d be used to it. I live on the West Coast of Scotland. Rain is something you’d expect me to be used to running in. But I’m not!
In the past, I’ve always been a ‘fair weather’ runner; I’ve skipped any runs that would involve running in the rain.
Yes, I know, I know.
But over the past 18 months, I’ve run in all weathers, and I really do love it, but I still find that I need to drag myself out there when it rains. When I’m actually running, I enjoy it- running in the rain is great! It’s refreshing, it keeps you cool, the roads are generally quieter, I get to splash in puddles…… but why do I still find it hard to get myself out the door?
Tonight, the rain was torrential, and the wind was quite strong. I didn’t really want to run. But I did. And I LOVED it! We were pretty speedy (well, for us, that is). We only did a two miler, since we’re, ahem,
lazy ‘tapering’ for Sunday’s 10K, but I’m really pleased with the run 🙂
And, I found another heart!
Here’s a heart I found a couple of weeks ago, that I forgot to share….
Run: 2 miles
Trainers: LunarFly GTX
Weather: very wet, rainy and windy
I listened to a Jillian Michael’s podcast again today, instead of music 🙂
Today’s Life Lesson: am I the only person who leaves their reusable bags in the car EVERY time I go to the supermarket?
How do you feel about running in the rain?
