I knew the rain would be a factor. I don't mind running in the rain...as long as it's not heavy rain that hurts when it hits you! And no thunder and lightning is a must too. I woke up Saturday (not too early...I scheduled our run for 6:15am) and immediately checked the radar.
We had a little bit of a window in there but I knew we would probably get a little wet. I wasn't backing off...my run was scheduled and I was all in! And no my friends didn't cancel either! :-)
As soon as I stepped outside it was sprinkling. I immediately took my phone back inside....I wasn't going to risk it getting wet. So no pictures for you. :-(
After a few stretches we were off! We had a hill during the first and second mile...but I barely noticed it since we were all talking. That's one of the many joys of running with friends! Before I knew it we had made it to the halfway point! We stopped for a few seconds to drink some water and then we were off again!
The last half of the run felt just as good as the first half. We kept a steady pace. My legs and lungs felt great. And the rain sprinkles kept it cool. It was an awesome run!
I came inside and took my #proof pictures.
I had been inside for about 10 minutes and all of a sudden it started pouring down rain! The kind of rain that stings when it hits you! I was so happy we got our run in before that started!!!
I spent the rest of the day with the family, indoors, being lazy. I snuggled up in my Zensah compression socks and watched a few episodes of Pretty Little Liars! (Is anyone else addicted to this show too?)
QOTD: What do you like to do on rainy days? Do you like to run in the rain?
