I have been known to be a fair weather runner. In fact, I am probably best known for not being a runner at all. Anyway, all that aside, I woke up at 6:30 this morning and ended up going for a run in the rain. Yes, a RUN in the RAIN. I’m still getting over it. Actually, it was quite pleasant. I was meant to do my next training run last night, but it was ever so warm and I was ever so tired so instead I saved it for this morning. It was far more refreshing running in 16C heat, with cool rain than running in 29C heat.
So today’s run was 21 minutes and I managed 3.8km. Granted it wasn’t all that easy. But I did it, and it should start getting easier soon enough. I still don’t feel like I am anywhere near 5km, but there are still a few days before the race!
