A friend of mine Tweeted me this the other day “Question @Chrispy47, when it's pouring rain like it is meow, would you still go out running??” And my answer was “sometimes I do yeah, rather run in the rain than bike”.
This morning the weather looked like this:
It was time to put my money where my mouth was. Or my feet where my mouth was? Or something like that anyways.
I put on my still filthy shoes from the Mudnewton.
Not too bad actually since I hosed them out for about five minutes when I got home that day and have run once in them already since.
And set out into the rain. It was great, I was not hot, I was continually cooled by the falling rain, I splashed in puddles and I did the main strip of Bridgenorth and back home again (5k) in under 23 minutes.
After the run I headed out to karate and then to the Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre (heretofore and hereafter known as ‘the gym’). Once I had gotten push day out of the way I decided that I was not quite finished and did Iron Man as well. I’ve talked about it before I think… yep.
Needless to say I was drenched in sweat, a good feeling since yesterday was our annual RockBand Party (The Screaming Monkeys have now been touring for 5 years) and I felt like I ate way too much even though Wii Fit says I only went up by 0.1Kg this morning.
And Now since the weather is so nice and cool, I sit here in my living room at like 66F and am loving it!
