Run: AZ Monsoons: Run in the rain?
Behold! My first video-taping adventure!
Today, I was supposed to wake up at 4:15 and run 9 miles. Shockingly, I actually did wake up at 4:15, but it was pouring rain (and much darker than I thought it would be). I waited around until five and then went back to bed.
Later today, I thought I might try it again. The cloud cover has kept it relatively cool outside so why not?... gah but those clouds once again did what they are oh-so-good at: making it rain.
Unless things clear up ASAP, no run for me. I was already contemplating slowing the training down since I don't really have to start training hard core for the RNR until mid September. Not to mention the legs are sore and the asthma is acting up. So overall, it's not a huge deal. I just get to feel like a fat ass all day after downing that HUGE plate of Chili Rellenos last night thinking I'd burn it all off today. FUN.
Anyways, sorry for the erratic posting this week. I'll be back on track next week. Have a great weekend!
OH AND.. I'm not just asking this to get comments, because I really have no idea... Do most runners run anyway when it's raining? Am I just a lazy bum? How do you compensate for bad weather--especially on long run days?
