I opened the door to go out and do Week 6 Run 2 and found it was raining! But I was changed, had downloaded the podcast and had everything set ready to go, so I grabbed my light rain jacket and off I went!
I have to say that actually running in the rain was ok (I don't mind walking in the rain, so why should running be any different?!) - except that I decided to choose today to run wearing my glasses, rather than my contact lenses (I have always worn my contact lenses until today!). By half way through I gave up with my glasses and put them in my jacket pocket - being short-sighted this meant that everything was now slightly fuzzy (as well as being wet and dark)!!
But I have now completed the 2 x 10 minute runs, and I even managed to go further and faster than I have ever done before! Maybe my subconscious thought that by running faster I would get out of the rain sooner?!?!
Run 3 here we come......
