I was sitting around at my desk in my running gear, waiting for this rain to stop (what a contrast to yesterday) and being called a ‘fair-weather runner’ by Edward, and realised it simply wasn’t going to ease, so I just went for it. It’s not cold or anything, just peedling it down. I stood around for ages getting wet while my Garmin tried to pick up a signal – I wonder what other people do while they wait…there’s a project there – and just set off in the end, getting bored with it. I stopped at the top of the park where there are no buildings and got a signal eventually.
The park was completely empty.
I did a combination of one minute fast/one minute slow. As much as I love running in the sunshine, I quite like the rain…secretly…it makes you feel like a real runner, dedication. I enjoyed the fast bits and had to hold back on the slow bits, going up the hill fast was fun!
