I love running in the rain/cold...I've noticed very many posts about not liking the bad weather and sticking to the gym/treadmill. Now I know I am weird (get told often enough!) but I find the rain cools me down and the cold is - well - invigorating? I'm not averse to a bit of mud either and the few frosty evenings have been great. A couple of years ago I used to run in the gym whilst watching tv on the machine but there really is no comparison. All the noise from others thudding away next to you, the god-awful music they play in the gym, the ghastly changing rooms.... As well as the eye-watering monthly fee which makes you feel guilty every time you don't go- I could go on but you get the picture.
Now I'm running with my dog (much better behaved!) through the mud, jumping over the bigger puddles, getting twigs stuck in my hair and yes, face-planting a couple of times. i love getting home after a run and mapping the route, having a bath, feeling smug - wouldn't mind if I never saw the inside of a gym again tbh.
Am sure running in the summer will be great - only graduated in December so something to look forward to 😎
