when you are wet you're wet!

So this morning, it was pouring! I know the country is wet but living in East Anglia I've only been out a handful of times in the rain since I started this!! I could hear the rain before i even peered out of the curtains! I was so tempted to go back to bed...but... the encouragement from reading this forum spurred me on! I could hear a myriad of voices saying go for it, and, when you are wet you're wet don't worry! So I did, pulled on the trainers and headed out the door with Laura telling me it'll be OK! (Yes i am still listening to Laura!) 40 minutes done and home for a hot shower and on with the day.

And yes I am glad I had the support of this forum cheering me out the door! Thank you

Haha LauraLou yes it was wet this morning in Suffolk. I managed to find a gap between the raindrops at 11:30, joys of being my own boss. Isn't this running lark fun though x

Well done Laura. It is not always tempting to get out there but I bet you felt great after the shower.

Lovely to be able to get both wet and muddy with no one to tell us off, still feels kinda naughty - hope u warmed up! I am on a running rest day, so cycled and had wind, sleet, rain and multiple puddles, feet were like blocks of ice!!

Aww it was awful in Peterborough this morning so well done ... I would have seriously needed dynamite to get me out as I went from house to car and got drenched just doing that! Off out tonight but it's cold now ... might need to pinch hubs running gloves! ;-)

Haha I'm not sure why but since I've started I seem to have found the motivation to get out regardless of the weather. Have a sneaky feeling it's the thought of what everyone on here is posting that gives that motivation. It does feel good though when you finish!

Well done! You do feel slightly insane when you head out in the rain, but it's so invigorating and always worth it :-)
