Keen to get to graduation, set off this afternoon with a feel good playlist, and became totally absorbed with singing in my head. The cool down command cuts in, I am three miles from base, it starts to spit with rain. No option but to run back. I gave it my best shot, battled driving rain, gave up trying to avoid the puddles and remarkably made it back. The post run shower felt fantastic - like a spa treatment for free. My initiation to running in the rain was nowhere near as awful as I imagined it would be and whilst I may not choose to set off in the rain a dodgy forecast is not a reason for postponing a run. So, that is rain experienced - the next hurdle will be cold I expect.
Just one more outing till I am done, that will have to wait till the shoes dry out now.
