Pouring down this morning but didn't put us off. Yogi dog ran through every puddle available whilst I ran around them, but he is a chocolate lab so expected behaviour. Such a buzz by the end.

Yogi dog loves running through puddles and you love running. Fantastic that you have completed the second 28 minute run of week 8, only 4 runs to go now until you and Yogi 🐢 dog graduate😊when you will be buzzing much more loudly than you did today😊

Of course he will, not sure if the administrators of C25K will give Yogi a graduation certificate but perhaps you could ask them politely to do that, if not give Yogi a extra portion of his favourite dog food.

Well done on your run Lindy and pooch! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ•

So, what did you wear? I’m heading out to parkrun in the promised deluge tomorrow morning (with my buddy too πŸ•), and it’s meant to be 8 degrees and bucketing down.

I know it’s an odd question, but I started C25K in mid June, graduated in August and have only run in the wet twice. Once was a light drizzle and once was slightly heavier, but it stopped after a few minutes. I’m a wet weather newbie! πŸ’¦πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ’¦πŸ•πŸ’¦

Ooh I’m the same Cheeky! Tricky one isn’t it? Not run in a downpour before, but I bet it’s a great feeling. 😁

I’ve got a very lightweight waterproof jacket and it even has a little hood inside. The rest I’d just wear the same. Maybe even a vest, rather than anything with sleeves as I do get quite hot during the run. The lighter coloured trainers (my faves) would have to stay at home too!! Oh the adventures to come! πŸ˜πŸ˜‹β€οΈ

All us summer C25Kers are in for a shock this weekend I think Fab!! πŸ˜³πŸ’¦

I’m really looking forward to it, although I have a 5 minute walk from where I park, which might not be so enjoyable.

I’m like you though - I get really hot quite quickly so can’t wear long sleeves running. Oh well, trial and error I guess! Will report back (possibly with drowned rat photo!) after the run! πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Have a great weekend! πŸ˜€

I actually wore a lightweight waterproof I bought for cycling and it was grand. Wore my Ron hill pants as usual as I'm not a lycra person.

Fantastic Lindy. I imagine running in the rain is actually quite a nice feeling. Just have to dry off well I guess. Well done to you both! 😁😁❀️

Yogi is obviously a great believer in β€œwhen you’re wet you can’t get wetter” which is cool... I may have a splash tomorrow for him!

Good run... nearly week 9!
