Rain rain go away

Itching to get out to run-but rain hammering down. Consoling myself with garden needs it. And making do with surfing this site-I also have far to much to do -work, wedding this fri, then off to Spain. I am like rabbit in the headlights-what to do first.

So I am time wasting with a cup of tea-looking at this site-checking out b210k programmes compared to audiofuel. Checked out stamina podcast on Sunday -ran away from that in fright-back to lovely safe stepping stones. But feel I need to push myself to go the extra distance. Any thoughts peeps??

Have a good week everyone:-)

  • You could always run in the rain? You ain't gonna shrink and when you're as wet as you can get, you ain't gonna get any wetter. And it's such fun too. Think of all those puddy muddles you can run through. Unleash your inner 6-year old and get splashing!!

  • hmm - did reply but didn't stick as it were. Anyway you are right about rain - I won't melt. but too much onto today - girl holiday prep- but i will be out tmoz rain or shine :-)

  • I'm prevaricating as well. Raining here. Got up late (no work 'til September), saw the rain, ok I'll treadmill, got dressed, had something to eat, shoes on, get iPad for interval timer for treadmill, while I'm here I'll just log that food, may as well check emails, c25k site, read the posts, want to run outside, need to get backside into gear, still sitting on the chair 30 minutes later!

  • Ha - and did you go??? I will be out tmoz - clear day of nothingness other than packing and clearing the house before holiday

  • Yes! Just back, went out on a 'bail out' route, could bail out at 1k, 3k, 4k or 5k. Ended up doing 10.5k (you can only get so wet)! In 1 hour 8 minutes. Had to stop for a wee at the loos in Caterham, do you know how hard it is to pull up lycra shorts when they're soaked!?!?!?!

  • its all glam this running - but still well done

  • My dad rang just after I got home, could he come over to use the printer, turned up 10 minutes later while I was still in my soggy kit and was reading over my shoulder when I posted the reply. He was more shocked with how far I'd run than the fact that I was announcing to a world full of strangers (and my virtual running buddies) my toilet habits!

  • you have made me smile today thank you

    No run for me tmoz - i have had lash extensions and have to keep them dry for 24 hours - i think sweat counts as liquid!! There we have both shared a wee something about ourselves - but no dad looking over my shoulder - wondering what the hell lash extensions are - as for husband - he has so not noticed despite batting my eyes at him!!!!

  • Lovely morning here - perfect running conditions. Just done a sub 30 min 5K, showered dressed and raring to face to day :-)

  • Lovely - it is a great feeling - but not achieved for me today too busy have nails and hair done for holiday :-)

  • Due to rain and heat I decided to join the local gym so I could still run. Worried that if I stopped I would never start again. I do find running on the treadmill easier but starting to worry I may not venture outside again.

  • You will - the better weather is due to return. And looking at all the posts on this site - everyone has there own strategies for keeping them in the running game. so if the treadmill works for you - go to it :-)

  • I went out in the thundery rain the other day, very refreshing but im used to it because of wet winter walks on dartmoor, that said i ran in the drizzle a couple of months ago and that was horrible

  • Too true - drizzle is totally miserable. i still have not ventured out - too busy. But runninghsoes packed for two weeks away in sunny spain.
