Educating Enid - Wet Running Gear

My "inner Enid" chose the wet weather running gear for this afternoon. It was the only way she was going outside.

The umbrella rather got in the way! But she stayed dry. I got soggy.

Hi Nilsam and Enid, I shall remember this when we next have to go out in the rain, lovely colours to cheer a grey day 😁

Thank you, jorge3. I do not really recommended it for running...wellies were rubbish. 😎 But I suppose at least we won't get run over.πŸ€”

Lovely picture. So glad you braved it. My caring fairy decided not to put her high-waisted waders on. Going to give it a go tomorrow 🀞🏼😌.

Really need to get a decent rain jacket though...read a few posts on the same theme so will have to have a look. I suspect I am going to need one this Spring...Summer...Autumn and probably Winter. 😎

What is this Inner Enid of which you speak??? lol

Well it's that little voice inside our head that nags or winges...the one that wants a biscuit and tells you to take a break. (I read a post by someone who had named it.) I decided that this character just needed educating. Surely if she knew about a healthy life running would give me / us, she would not be so lazy. However, Enid has just ended up as a bit of fun where most of the time I end up drawing what I would do if I could. πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨ πŸ‘

Oh yes they have many terrible twins...triplets even. But they can be quietened...we can work on it together. (Cake in the mouth works but it does not help in their education 🍰πŸͺπŸ₯§.)

At least the thought of being cosy in the wellies under that colourful umbrella helped you push through! Brilliant! Is it ever going to stop raining! I just missed the downpours as I went out just after 6am, but it was pretty soggy out there. It's interesting soaking your trainers and socks through!

How weird that we're prepared to face anything to run!

Yes, when I read your inspiring post this morning I thought I was being clever by waiting for a break in the rain but it didn't happen. πŸŒ§πŸŒ«πŸ˜πŸ‘

It's nice to have some virtual running buddies to encourage one another!

'Weather' doesn't usually bother me, but even I'm getting fed up with this! Your posts give me something to smile about. ☺️

Ah that is kind, thank you. (I probably should have been doing some house work or just working rather than painting but just messing about made me smile too. )πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨

Enid’s umbrella β˜”οΈ is beautiful but rather cumbersome for running.

Glad you didn’t have to use one 😊

I’m impressed Enid got out there and didn't sit on the couch drinking tea and munching biscuits, whilst waiting for you to get back. Maybe you’re education of her is starting to pay off! Well done on the run even if it was a bit soggy πŸ‘πŸ˜

Don’t ask, It didn’t happen! Got there yesterday to be told that the dizzy receptionist had booked me into the wrong clinic. I was raging as similar happened two years ago. Husband, who works away from home during the week had taken a day off, so he had a wasted 165 mile round trip. Rescheduled for Wednesday next week 🀬
