I rarely run in rain because I generally dislike it.
But today, this was on the radar at the time I had to run, but I had to get my run done, and that was the only time I could, so I sliced right through that enormous Gordian knot of excuses that I can generate at a moment's notice and out the door I went.
It was freaking pouring. I was soaked through by the first turn out the driveway. But actually it didn't feel so bad, since it was a balmy 60*F outside. The only major annoyance was that my too-large Coolmax shirt got flappy and floppy and my visor started getting heavy and sinking down my face when it got loaded up with water. A couple stops to tighten it and I was all set.
191 minutes of walking and running done in 3 days out of my "Biggest Loser Challenge" requirement of 280 minutes for the week. Yeah, I think I can handle another 89 minutes in 4 days. If I get ambitious I may subtract the walking part out and just finish it all running. We'll see. I'm just not positive exactly how I'll get it done yet because we're going for a little RV vacation this coming weekend. We're test-renting a big RV from a new place in town for a couple nights and taking it down to Chincoteague for the long spring break weekend. The weather for the weekend looks MUCH more promising for some running than today's did, however!
