Week 9 run 2 this morning. I woke up and heard the rain thrumming on the roof and realised that today was my day to finally run in the rain!! I have to admit I was quite excited, I'd heard so many good things about running in the rain, although to be honest, it was better than just being cold like Monday but anyway.
Things I learnt:
1) My waterproof jacket is not waterproof. Not particularly worried because the rain cooled me down but I put my phone in a pocket and my phone was a little damp when I retrieved it!!
2) I need glasses for distance vision and as I run very early in the dark I like to have my wits about me and fully aware of whats going on ahead of me. Sadly the glasses got very wet and then started steaming up so I had to go without after 10 mins. But it wasn't too much of a drama.
I have to admit I'm quite proud of myself that I did actually go out despite the weather and I enjoyed it. I even felt like I could speed up for the last 5 minutes which was a total accomplishment for me.
Run 3 on Saturday!! Arghh!!
