W7R3 "First time in the rain!" ☔️:)

W7R3 "First time in the rain!" ☔️:)

1 X 25 minute run.

.

First time running in the rain. I suppose there is a first time for everything. Not many "first times" to come about but gotta take it when it comes.

.

It was an intense battle with myself whether to run or not to run!

.

Eventually found a slim enough plastic bag for the phone and remembering earphones are splash resistant, headed out onto a patchy drizzle.

.

A Beeb ad says our weather is more local they I have ever realised. It's actually a heavy rain on my usual running route.

Well, all I had to do is change routes. So that's sorted.

.

I was worried whether I would soak my feet and make my last Primark blisters as I call them, worse. It has surprisingly held up and my feet were dry after the run. ✨Magic. ✨

.

Next on the list of things to buy, as Britain is heading towards weeks of rain, a hat with a visor. It's surprisingly hard not to open my mouth whilst running and taste the polluted acid rain over Londinium. :P

Onto week 8 then! Go you 😊

"Tasting the polluted acid rain over Londinium" actually has a very poetic ring to it!

I love running in the rain. It's invigorating and I also get the local park to myself. :-)

Well done on completing Wk7 R3. That's my next one and it's always good to hear about people at the same stage as me.

P.S. It's a beautiful sunny day in S.W Herts!

Yay for running in the rain and finishing W7! Well done! I'll be doing my run later this evening - probably in the dark.

I did try running with a peaked cap to keep the rain off my glasses, but found running into the wind difficult. Even with hair grips to keep it in place it was a constant battle sometimes to keep it on my head.
