As predicted, it was raining when I woke up this morning. No amount of rain was going to stop me from completing my training, so I got out of bed and dressed for the weather. The rain was very cold and by the time I got to the gym my clothes were pretty wet. I love that I have a waterproof phone! I grabbed a couple hand towels to dry off with as I made my way to a treadmill. There was no signal for the tv, so I watched some preloaded music videos while I ran. I ran four pretty tough miles on the treadmill. It seems that my treadmill runs are getting harder and harder. Hopefully I will get to run outside tomorrow.
When I left the gym to head back home it was barely raining. I still had to dodge quite a few umbrellas on the way. I decided to stretch when I got back so I didn’t have time to cool down before I had to run back through the cold rain. The entire 5.15 took 46:56, only because the mile outside was run at a very fast pace. I wanted to be outside the least amount of time as possible. I miss Florida’s predictable afternoon thunderstorms; those never affected my runs.
