I increased my midweek short runs this week and did another 8 miler this morning. Such a wet day here but I really enjoyed this run and felt good at the end. Still a little behind where I would like to be for my March HM, but slowly getting there. Also, the first time I have dug out my running cap to wear in the rain, and what a difference that made, shielding some of my face from the rain at least! The bridleways were very muddy with lots puddles to splash through. Back on the roads, I included a couple of decent inclines so I felt quite challenged at times! Next week I would really like to manage 10 miles but we will see! Hope everyone enjoys their running week.😀
It rained...for 8 miles it rained!💦 - Bridge to 10K
Bridge to 10K
Well done Sandra ! Oh yes the rain, it lashed it down all day here today too . I was flippin hot though, I had to take my jacket off !
Good Luck on your 10 miler ! xxx
Hope u are well
Yep, Im okay thanks, feeling a lot better after my run yesterday . Hope all's well with you xxx
Sounds like you've picked right up again Sandra! you're right on track I need to get back to it!
I've not done well this week, only 1 x 7km run on Tuesday, been a bit of a strange week. Poor old fig pig got put to sleep on Friday and i didn't fancy parkrun Saturday, not in the mood for rushing around
But new week coming up, and a 5 mile muddy cross country hosted by ryde harriers next Sunday, so that'll be fun . And treated myself to Reflective run jacket at Aldi in sale, only £9.99 so will try that on club night on Tues
So sorry to hear about dear little Fig, Ali. I know you were worried about him. And it's ok to take your foot off the pedal occasionally too - I know you will soon be back out there gathering more bling! Good luck with that muddy 5 miler next weekend. You will be fab, I bet! 🙂 x
Well done to you
As you saw on my post I wimped out this morning cos of the rain!!
Blimey... well done you... so wet here today.. I did not venture out.
I am full of respect for you getting out there...mud and puddles though.. it does sound tempting!
Wow. Long time to be running in the rain. Nicely done.
Well done! Hats off to you - oh... er... no! I am trying to toughen up about running in the rain and although I have been out in a little bit of bad weather, there's no way I could do a whole long run in it! I admire your fortitude. I do have a cap though but I have never worn it and that sounds like it made a good difference for you, so I might try that when I next have to - yuck! You are doing well with your distance and I'm sure you will be on track for your 10 miler
I had never worn a cap in the rain either, usually come back like a drowned rat! 8 miles with rain dripping into my eyes was not inviting, so I dug out the cap and now don't know why I haven't used it before! I did several 10 mile runs in October last year but had a break from runnning in December, due to lurgies. Have a HM in March which I am hoping to be ready for, but we will see. 🙂
I don't mind drizzle but full on rain isn't really my thing. Very impressed Sandra.
A cap makes it bearable. Mine was £4.99 from Aldi. With a light in the brim 😀 My Aldi run jacket hood fits over the cap if it's windy.
Sorry to hear about Fig! Take care Ali 🙂 Your new run jacket will be a boon. Enjoy your race 😀
Sounds like a great run, and great spirit. Well done you!
Well done - sounds like you are doing fine. There is something quite satisfying about running in the rain and getting soaked through - I think it's like being a kid again and not being bothered about what it's doing to your hair!!!
Wow, fantastic progress you are doing so well!
Not what you're looking for?
