To run or not to run in the rain?
I don't mind light to medium drizzle but I do find it IMPOSSIBLE to warm up afterwards (currently wearing 2 hoodies and a blanket).
I probably wouldn't run in the rain if I weren't training for anything. Right now I'm in pre-marathon training & that is totally a thing & I need a certain number of miles every week.
What's your relationship with rainy runs?
Today was a bit of a bummer.
I got a rejection letter from an OT school and it rained all day :/
But, it’s all okay. I know God is just closing a door. And I sure know He doesn’t want me to worry. Im trying so hard not to worry.
It’s not even the school that is a downer, because it was one of my lower choices. It’s that I still have a few interviews left (including my top school) and the rejection really lowered my confidence and has made me second guess my applications and capability. I just dont know what I did wrong, and I dont want to make the same mistakes.
However, today has also been beautiful in the fact that I have been leaning on God and worshipping Him in the process, because He is so, so good. He knows what is best for me and I need to trust that! I listened to a podcast today that really helped me remember: I can still (and always) be joyful because Jesus has won for me! His triumph is complete and eternal. And that is the greatest prize of all. “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33)
A rainy 6 miles filled with worship music. It felt really good and honestly cleansing. It was just what I needed. “Ever be” by Bethel music is my jam today. “Your praise will ever be on my lips”
Thank you God for blessing me in so many ways and being faithful to me. I trust in you always. ❤️
It's raining, but that isn't going to stop me. I live in Manchester for goodness sake! So off I went, and for the first time ever I completed a 5K run on my own without the adrenaline of a panic attack!
I'm so pleased with myself, I found myself slowing a little in the middle but really dug deep and pushed myself for that last 1km to get as fast a time as possible. I'm hoping to hit a 30min 5K early in the new year!
I'm also bringing in my 2nd week with a 0.8kg loss, possibly only slowed due to those 5am munchies on a night shift over the weekend. Overall I'm very happy with my first really week without snacking, I managed 7 workouts, I looked after myself when I was feeling ill towards the end of the week otherwise it would have been 8.
I'm excited to see what I'll manage this week 💪
A very cold wet and windy club session this evening - so much so we couldn’t get a none blurry group picture 🤦🏼♀️ I would be lying if I said I didn’t think of a few excuses not to make it tonight (and with only 8 of us tonight I think the excuses got the best for some) but as always after the session I couldn’t of been happier to have gone and got it done!! A mix tonight of 2 x 4minutes, 3 x 2minutes and 6 x 1 minutes all off 1 minute recovery - didn’t take too long to warm up, thanks coach @cholman602 ⏱🏃🏼♀️👌🏼

Już chyba to taka tradycja, że gdy Narzeczony Roku wspiera i kibicuje, w pogardzie mając tnące szpony mrozu i słońce pustyni, to dodatkowo leje, a ja biegam życiówki. 💪🏃☔
I nie, nie jest to mały jesienny deszczyk, kapuśniaczek czy mżawka. To ulewa, jak z amerykańskiego filmu, taka naturalna -prosto spod ogrodowego węża. I tak przez całe długie 3 godziny i 16 minut.🌧🌧🌧
Tak, @teamgulaszowa ma patyk w ręce, a ja skupiam się na każdym kroku, aby stawiać stopę dalej niż pozwala mi na to zmęczenie.
Tak, chciałabym mieć lepszy wyraz twarzy, lecz to i tak była dobra mina do dobrej gry! 🏃☔💪💧
Maybe I still have last weeks Disney trip on my mind because the theme of today’s run was “the cold never bothered me anyway”. Between strong wind gusts and freezing rain, I told myself just get out and run a mile, but ended up with over 4. I am not a huge fan of cold weather running but gotta say runs like this make me feel pretty hardcore. And having a husband that’s almost 2x my size doesn’t hurt...his jacket kept me almost completely dry 😉. Halfway through November and over 100 miles in the bank! Happy Friday eve! #rainyrun#runhappy#leadbyexample#getitdone#womensrunningcommunity#runnerscommunity#motherrunner#bamr#rungrateful#runlove#runstreak day 94🖤
Rain Rain Go Away... 🌧 The weather was pretty gross here today which caused me to run on the treadmill this morning. I could have tackled the wet cold rain, but since I knew I would be doing a rainy run later in the day with Colleen I opted to stay inside in the warmth. ☺️
For the second run, I met Colleen at the high school she works at in order to save some time today. We did this because her parents are coming to visit us tonight. I feel like anytime I go to a high school, it brings back old memories about growing up. Today a realization hit me... I am almost to the point in my life that I've spent more time alive after I graduated high school than before I did. Life needs to stop moving so quickly!
Side Note: Why do I see everyone I know whenever I wear running tights..?
Wore my hat to keep the hair dry on the drizzly run today, but my rear end totally met the wet pavement at a slick area of the trail😵. Ouch!! So on the return run, I opted for the soggy, muddy grass to stay vertical! Even with that slow down to walk for a few more seconds, I still managed to pull 4 miles in at 10:57 per mile...not too bad. #latergram#runkeeper#rainyrun
12,30km de blablarun ce midi avec @artwech 🏃♀️🏃♂️
C’est notamment avec lui que je prendrais le départ de la Saintésprint dans 2 semaines et demi🏁pour 22km de nuit🌜
C’est aussi important de s’entraîner par tous les temps car on n’a aucune idée💡de la météo☃️qu’on aura le 1er décembre😅
Je me laisse 48h de repos avant de faire un nouveau run de 10km où je vais tenter de battre mon personal best🥇
Je vais courir avec mon lièvre🐰qui ne me lâche pas et m’aide à repousser mes limites et j’ai un cours après😅
Conclusion, j’ai un peu la double pression🙃
On en reparle jeudi👍
Belle soirée à tous😘
