What a difference the rain makes

For the first time in weeks I was able to run for 30 mins relatively easily yesterday, because the temperature had dropped and I had the pleasure of heavyish rain showers. Heat and humidity make me feel as though I'm dragging a heavy weight along and on one outing I could barely make 16 minutes non-stop. It's restored my confidence :-). Hoorah for drizzle!

  • I was out at 7.30 this morning & it was lovely to be out in fresh, cool air. Happy running!

  • I was out this morning too, but it was difficult to go out!!!


    but once out there I agree it was very nice to run in the fresh rain: it makes you feel much stronger ;)

  • Yeah! Lovely now the temperature has dropped. Only problem with rain is snail dodging along my running path into the village.. pah ;-)

  • Round here it's slugs - eeugh!

  • It's so much more fun when it's cooler! The rain hasn't arrived in Munich yet though.

  • Yes I agree !

    I love running in the rain, its fab !

    The heat and humidity just suck all the energy out and leave me feeling like a flopped out mop :-)

    Hurrah ! :-) xxx

  • It was still quite warm first thing, here in Surrey, when I ran - lot of sunshine😩 . It has now clouded over, cooled down and there is a lovely breeze! Wish I was running now!!

  • Oh, and now it's raining too...bliss!

  • I love it too! Hated going out in the rain before running - how it changes us!

  • Lucky it's nearly always raining / drizzling / dull here in Scotland , only run once in heat which was soooo hard
