  • I was going to say just do it, but with a cold coming on....wait until tomorrow :)

    It doesn't matter, another rest day might help your next run :)

  • I've got set days ie Mon Wed Fri as it's the only time I can do it

  • Wednesday would be fine too. Ask yourself 'How will I feel if I don't run today?' The answer will tell you what to do :)

  • I'd feel annoyed and upset so here goes 🖒

  • Just go out and get wet! If you had been out before it started raining you would be out in the rain now....I was at a triathlon on Saturday when the heavens opened with stair-rods of rain falling from the sky and the athletes just carried on running the half marathon run.

  • U know what ur right .....move over rain I'm cumin through 🤣😉🖒

  • Enjoy - one of the best runs I had was in the rain being splashed from head to foot by cars!

  • You can only get so wet!

  • If it's any help I did my first bucket run yesterday it was fine, running kept me warm I looked like a drowned rat, the only issue was slipping on polished tarmac going uphill. I made sure I had a nice fluffy towel and hot shower awaiting... I didn't feel cold at all. So if you went I hope you enjoyed your bucket run..

  • Thanx Jancanrun yes I did exactly that 😉

  • Button up and get out there.. i got drenched on Friday.. and it was amazing...hot shower and honey and lemon when you head back home:)

  • Did you go? I've just got back from W4 R2, got utterly soaked. The warm up walk was pretty cold and miserable but once I got running it was fine.

  • Yes I did and so glad I did it 😃

  • Well done on braving the rain, I'm sure it was worth it!

  • It certainly was 😃
