Day 339: Running in the Rain!
Monday was the day I ran in the rain… real rain too not just drizzle!
It was even raining before I set out, I made a conscious choice to run in the rain…
which possibly makes me crazy…
or a bear…
this bear seems to be happy running in the rain…
I was too…at first, then I wasn’t, then I was again!
Basically I spent the entire run flipping between:
“woohoo I am running in the rain it is so much fun and quiet”
“wet…I am so wet…soggy all soggy, it is raining, why am I out in this I hate being wet!”
there was a lot of indecision!
on balance I am proud of myself for running in the rain, and I think the majority swung towards the liking it, but the overwhelming soggy did win out in the end and I cut my run short after 5km…and that sentence there shows how far I have come in a year…
this time last year the idea of cutting a run short, and it still being 5km would have been completely unheard of!
I ran shorter intervals this time (5 min run 1 walk) as I hadn’t been for a couple of weeks, and this pattern seems to make me quicker. I did struggle a bit finding my stride, but that might have been because of the overwhelming sogginess!!
Once I had finished my run, and got dry… I did, of course have squats to do!
190 Standard squats
50 plie squats
50 plie squats on toes
