Lovely rainy run today ๐Ÿ˜Š

โ€ข16 Replies

Finally managed to banish the ranger today on my first run for a full week. Shouldโ€™ve been doing a 30 minute run with intervals for W5R3 of Ju-Juโ€™s plan but couldnโ€™t face the intervals n just wanted to run after several days of vegetating in front of the fan so set off with no goal in mind n didnโ€™t even care that it was raining

Managed 40 minutes n then started feeling tired and sluggish, probably a legacy of the severely curtailed activity this week so left it at that. Really enjoyed it, even the rain was lovely. Glad I didnโ€™t leave it any later though, it started pouring about 15 minutes after I got home

Onwards to Week 6 now as Iโ€™m a week behind ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

That's great, glad you got back out there. And running in drizzle is quite refreshing!

It was more than drizzle, it was proper rain lol. More than light rain but definitely not heavy Iโ€™d say. It was lovely, so refreshing and kept me cool too. Wouldnโ€™t run if it was pouring but Iโ€™ve broken my โ€˜no more than drizzleโ€™ rule now ๐Ÿ˜‚

Glad you had a good run. The no pressure/agenda ones seem to turn out the best ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‚

They do donโ€™t they lol ๐Ÿ˜‚


Sounds lovely. A week behind is nothing in the big scheme of things. And intervals in that heat?!!!!!! ๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿฅต NO! NO! You made the right decision ๐Ÿ™‚

It was lovely, especially after the horrid heat lol. Glad youโ€™re with me on the intervals, the very thought made me shudder ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


Go you!! Youโ€™ve inspired me - Iโ€™ve been hopeless this week - sore Achilles plus heat = โ˜น๏ธ. Will get out tomorrow... DEFINITELY!! X

Ha! Before running I would insist on wearing a coat but now I enjoy the cooling of rain and embrace it! Well done SeeJillRun

Same here! I have a waterproof running jacket but it was too warm to wear it plus after the heat it was lovely to just run and get wet lol ๐Ÿ’ฆ


Well done

Cheers ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


Well done for going out there. Iโ€™ve suffered from cabin fever too and I felt amazing on Friday and today when I ran.

Itโ€™s so good to get back out after some time off isnโ€™t it! Iโ€™d never run in rain like that normally but I was past caring after a weekโ€™s break ๐Ÿ˜‚
