How much rain?!!!!😑@#$&^#😠

β€’17 Replies

It's been pouring down for THREE days now and although i had thought i'd go out nomatterwhat, ... i haven't. A drizzle is ok, a sudden rain in the midst is ok but to deliberately go out when it's pouring down?

So i have not run in 3 days and i am in such a bad mood for it! I should i suppose go to the gym and get my run in at the treadmill but I find that static indoors sooo boring.

There. Just needed to get this out of my system. Sorry everyone!

Oh no! And just when we’re having such fabulous weather here too! Hopefully it’ll ease up soon and you can get out again. Go on, pop to the gym. Better than nothing surely? πŸ‘πŸ˜€πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

We had the Medicane Zorbas sweeping through. No harm done except for the endlesssssss raiaiaiaiaiainnn! Yes i know gym is better than nothing and at least it will help pick up my mood. It's incredible how i miss the exercise!


We’ve been lucky and only had a couple of showers... perfect running weather up here in North Derbyshire... it won’t last πŸ˜‚

If the treadmill is what it takes, do it.

I know right? And i love the rain with a cuppa. But HOW MUCH RAIN can i take when i can't even let steam out?

You're right. I actually didn't think of the treadmill till today, silly me. I would've gone on saturday and be done with it!

Thank you.


I'm with you on the treadmill running. Boring, with nothing to watch but the clock. But it's only 30 minutes out of your life and it'll get you sweating just the same. Get it over with and the sun will shine tomorrow.

You ARE right. I think i will if it doesn't clear up enough till the afternoon. I will NOT miss another day. Enough!


You need to bite the bullet and head out to the gym to get that run in. We haven't even got to oct/Nov yet which tend to be really rainy months.

You are just going to have to get used to running on the treadmill!

I did 20 minutes on one yesterday as part of my gym induction and although it wasn't anything like running outdoors it actually wasn't too bad. Tunes on, speed set and off you go!

I know, you're right. I have to get used to that option too. I finally went out and ran tonight. The rain had just about stopped so i was alright.

But i WILL try the treadmill. And like you say: music, tracking and off i go. Promise. ☺


As bad as me not running due to my silly knees! Maybe you could get your swimming costume out?!? πŸ˜‚

I’m sure it will clear up soon. Drizzle isnt too bad. It’s when it slings it down that’s awful!

Ahaha yes i could! Thanx for the idea!! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

It was close to a storm for 3 days non-stop. They called it Medicane (mediterranean hurricane) Zorbas. I just wish i had thought of the gym... never min, i ran tonight. Feeling MUCH better now.

How is your injury ??

Mayanow in reply to Mayanow

And it's not just the rain . It's also the cars that pass without breaking much and all the water from the road spashes all over pedestrians so, that would be me trying to run, and having buckets of water thrown at me..

Hi Mayanow, I had hoped to run tomorrow, but rain forecast. I think I am going to to Joe Wicks Beginners HIT work out instead. Hard work, but good.

Hope my link has worked. All the best. You have loved your running so much, look forward to a post saying how well it's going😊

Ah! I see you have already run! An idea for another day! All the best for your next runs. 😊

Oops! Replied in the wrong place! Here it is again!

Ah! I see you have already run! An idea for another day! All the best for your next runs. 😊

Yes the link works- thank you for the idea. I have not dared HIIT yet... but we must conquer all fears right? I mean we graduated c25k so no challenge is impossible!! πŸ˜‰

Yes i did my run and i am excited about something so i will be posting soon! It's just that i have a dinner tonight and i am cooking and setting the table... no time today! 🍷🍽


How’s the running going? I’ve not been for a run in around 2 weeks. Still trying to book a physio. Pulling my hair out!! 😬😬 I appreciate how much running helps with the mental as well as physical side of things! Whenever I see anyone running I get jealous πŸ˜‚ only a little bit!! I’ve been eating rubbish and drinking too much which is not good.

Mayanow in reply to Hidden

Yeah... i know what you mean. I'm like that. If i can't get it right i go ALL THE WAY WRONG!!! why can't u get an app/ment? Are they all so busy?? How frustrating...

I am running but i feel i'm quick to stop if i think i could. Do you understand what i mean? I don't like that.

I am currently in belgium, took my running gear and went out. I will post. It is so beautiful...
