It’s a very rainy day today ☔️… I’m still on leave so took my time getting up, had a coffee and tried to put on running clothes that would maybe keep me dry… and they did to a degree, but if I’d have stayed out any longer I might have been soaked through. 💦 💧 🏃♀️
Today’s run was a 2 minute warm up then 3 miles effort, that was 7:13, 7:37, 7:42, then a 2 min cool down and I covered 3.45 miles.
My tips for running in the rain are:
1 – wear a cap, 🧢 to keep the rain out of your eyes. 👀
2 – wear a waterproof or showerproof jacket 🧥 if you want,
3 – wear minimal clothes, shorts 🩳 and vest, especially if its warm. 🌧 4 – skin is waterproof, just get out there and enjoy it. 🏃♀️ 5 – Shelter under a bridge if it gets really heavy / lightning ⛈ 🌩
6 – when you finish, strip off somewhere you can dump all of your wet💧clothes, so you can hang it soon to dry / dry your trainers out. 7 – after the run 🏃♀️ – have a shower 🚿 or bath 🛁.
8 – wear warm clothes after the run / shower / bath. 😇
