I've just got back from my usual Saturday morning romp over the local mini mountains. Usually it's hard work, but well worth it. This morning I encountered freezing rain, sleet, slush and a surprise free gift of black ice. I can't say I was a happy bunny, but at least I felt like a minor super hero for having got out there and completed my planned 10k regardless. It was really hard work I'll admit. One of those 'running through treacle' days. I had dressed up for the occasion with my flouro pink water resistant jacket, with a long sleeved flouro orange top underneath, thermo leggings with a purple waist band, a red baseball cap to keep the rain out of my eyes and blue trainers. I don't think I left too many colours out. 😂
I am planning on getting waterproof socks, but my biggest issue was freezing wet legs. I refuse to stay in just because the weather isn't playing nicely, so I wondered if anyone has any experience of water resistant leggings/running tights? I've seen them online, but they are a bit pricey, so I thought I'd ask before I risk it.
