Rain, rain, go away

I went running this morning in the rain. Partly because I wanted to Stay On Schedule, partly because I’m daft, and partly because it might be worse tomorrow, and at least the rain was light.

My attitude towards rain as a runner is different from my normal attitude toward rain. I want to avoid rain when walking or commuting to work. But when I’m running, right away I get about as wet as I’m going to get, and then it stays more or less steady after that.

I’m currently on a training program of running one hour twice during the week (which for me is a little over 8K) and then a longer run on Saturdays.

One tip for running in the rain: if you’re carrying your phone with you, enclose it in a plastic sandwich bag. It stays dry, and you can still operate it through the bag.
