Soaked but chuffed

Thursday is one of my run days & usually I go out ay 5.30am so that I've done it before work. Today though I'm working late so it meant I could go out 'later' - 7am! I got ready, looked out the window & saw the rain. Now, I lived in North Yorkshire for 10 years so I'm well used to rain so even though I now live in deepest Kent I still set out. Rain at 45 degrees & chilly wind are not ideal conditions. Things weren't improved by puddles & getting splashed by cars. Still I did a gentle 25 minutes then headed to the park to finish off with tthe 5k+ speed podcast. It was still pouring & I was soaked but I did it & felt bloody great! Home for a lovely hot shower, hot coffee & crumpets. All before work too. Despite the rain it was a great run. Happy days!

  • I can relate. I am also in deepest Kent and had similar conditions this morning.

    But yes, the post run shower was extra nice.

  • Yes Kent for me too and its grim out there this morning. I love running in the rain but there are limits! Sounds like you made the most of it though and had a good run anyway, so well done you! x :-)

  • Sounds like a wonderful way to start the day for those of us who enjoy getting up early. Well done Sharon, and hope you've been glowing for the rest of the day :)

  • Lucky you lot, we got snow here! Damn, thought we was finished with that.

  • Same for me this morning, but minus the coffee and crumpets! Lots of fun.

  • Well done for going.

    I love running in the rain but I don't like the puddles - I don't like to get my trainers wet!

    So I sort of skip round puddles where ever possible - I run like a right girl when it rains!!!
