Today my dry weather luck ran out! I was on Week 6 Run 3. So far I have managed every single run in the dry, with the exception of a wee bit of drizzle on Monday. I consider myself to have been extremely lucky!
Last night the forecast was for some rain in Scotland, but it wasn't supposed to be as far as Aberdeen, and we live just outside the boundary. Well, when I got up and looked out the window, I could see the ripples the raindrops were making on the puddles. Darn! I had too many plans today to do my run later in the day. So, I got myself dressed, got my water bottle, selected my run and off I went.
I didn't enjoy running in the rain, but it wasn't as onerous as I had thought it would be. Tried not to think of the rain running down my face, and discovered that wiping my face with the cuff of my glove wasn't a great idea, because I only got wetter. Wiping my brow with my sleeve was definitely a no-no!
I lagged with about seven minutes to go, but managed to keep moving at more than a walk. I'm very relieved that I managed to run the entire 25 minutes.
