I don’t mind running in the rain, but with the following caveat: I don’t want to start when it’s raining. If it starts raining after I’ve started the run, I’m okay with that. It actually feels nice. But I don’t like starting in the rain.
We have a Tropical Storm off the coast that is threatening to dump a lot of rain on us as early as this afternoon. If that happens, I’ll be forced to either skip today (which is dumb because it’s supposed to be raining tomorrow all day) or I’ll have to use our exercise cycle for the first time.
We bought the exercise cycle for my wife. She has a knee injury and can’t run for a few months, but she’s able to use the bike. I also figured it’d be something I could use on days when it’s not feasible or possible to run. And now, it seems that day might be today.
I really hope I can just go out and run. It’s not going to be too hot out today, and I really want to hit the same course I did on Monday. I’m not looking to blaze the ground with speed, but I am looking forward to getting at least 90 push ups and a sub 9:20/mile if possible. I know I can run faster, but since I’m nursing some aches, I think it’s better to take it easy and just get the heart rate up.
