I have set out for a run when it looked like rain, and have run in the rain, but I've never set off in a downpour. The weather has been a bit downpour-esque here this afternoon, so I am wondering what to do about my run tonight. I don't want to skip it, but if it is chucking it down, do you not get really cold and sopping wet on the 5 minute warm up walk? I am usually wearing just a top and capri pants or little shorts to run in at the moment, because if I wear a jacket I get much too hot, but it also means I will get very cold if it throws it down during the warm-up. But on the other hand, it is too warm to take a jacket just for the warm-up walk, as I would think I'll be fine once I'm running, and running with it tied round my waist for 20 minutes really annoys me!
