W8 R2

Did I do something to offend the weather...? Just before setting off, the heavens opened, thunder, lightning, hail the lot. It felt like the floodgates had opened. Deciding to wait till things had eased up felt the sensible thing to do. However in doing so it meant my regular path was more like a raging river canyon. Detours were taken, tip toes trodden around newly formed lakes and generally half a dozen or more interruptions to what is normally a half pleasant run.

By the time I got back to the car I felt I had done twice the distance and weighed twice as much as everything was totally sodden...

I am hopeful the shoes and I will have chance to dry out before R3 ...!

  • Well done deviate66 still sounds like a good run and not long now to graduation. Weather has probably calmed now you have appeased the running gods with your offering - he he.

    Good luck with the rest of the programme

  • deviate666, devil incarnate, you deserved it. Oops, only 66. Sunny climate coming to make up for this mistake. You are forgiven. Keep up the good work.

    :-)

  • They will! I got soaked the other day, and like you had to do more jumps and side stepping than a little. Wading at one point which grieved me as I didn't want to get my new Nikes mucky! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh. They dried off beautifully without a mark on em and yet I was up to my knees in muck.

    Never mind Dev, it's good training, and all that hopping and side stepping counts as cross training and will help that calorie burn. I bet you quite enjoyed it. It's ok being wet as long as you're warm. The challenge is being cold and wet which is not ideal

    Tick it off. It's over now. Done and dusted. Enjoy your rest day and look forward to Run 3. Gosh, it's getting exciting now. Wooooooooooooooooh

  • I managed to swerve around hundreds of puddles on my run last night, then ploughed right into the middle of a virtual lake while squinting at my Garmin on my warm down walk. Doh!
