W1 R2 I now have a fondness for rain!

I've not been feeling 100% today and as a result my breathing wasn't quite as good as the first run but I finished it!

Don't know whether it's the rain but I felt cold before I'd even finished my warm down?!

I haven't run in the rain yet... but I can see how it would have a cooling effect! Great job finished the second run!!

Go Minnow! I've not run in the rain yet, but no doubt it'll happen now we're into Autumn! Hope the fact you felt cold doesn't make you feel bad. X

Thanks Snodi! I'm sure it won't be long 😂 It's amazing how wet I got considering it was only raining lightly! When are you running again? x

My next run is tomorrow night 😁 it's looking likelythat it will be in the rain now too! 😂 x

I'm keeping my fingers crossed it doesn't lash it down! Good luck with your final run for W1 :) x

Well done Minnow! I've bought a light, rain proof running jacket, makes the joy of rain running even better when you're not soaked to the skin.... 😂

I went for a run in the rain on Monday evening and it was refreshing.

Ah your first run in the rain, it's a rite of passage I think :) Well done for keeping going. And actually I find that the rain doesn't bother me, other than I have to take my glasses off. It cools me down, and my clothes are going in the wash afterwards anyway and I have a post run shower, so I just stopped worrying about it. Keep trying to remember to take some shower gel with me, kill two birds with one stone :)

Well done, and hey, you've nearly done week 1 now, I've been there recently, and you can be justifiably very proud.

Thanks Neil. Haha I like your idea....a shower on the go! My neighbourhood might not appreciate it though :)
