Finished my second run for week 2 no problem, was my first time running in the rain and got completely soaked!! Unfortunately my new waterproof coat didn’t work 😭
W2R2: Finished my second run for week 2 no... - Couch to 5K
Great you've completed wk2r2. Not great about your jacket . I know a lot of jackets are showerproof supposedly, maybe someone on here will suggest one that works. Well done you 😊😊
Well done for running in the rain. What type of 'waterproof' do you have?
For a truly waterproof jacket in torrential rain you are probably talking high tech mountain gear which you probably dont want to run in. More importantly make sure you get out of wet gear into something warm and dry soon after finishing so you dont catch a chill.
Oh no! I did my run 2 in the rain as well! (but on Tuesday) and after warming up it was really nice and kept me cool. I did come back soaking wet, but really didn't care! Hope you managed to warm up and dry off nicely! X x
Got some brand names of waterproof running gear for you: Gore wear, downhill and Nike all do run specific bad weather gear. Just got email from Baxter's Loch Ness marathon about it, they seem to think the weather up north might not be bright and sunny in October! I'm aiming for the 5k part of the weekend.
