1. Yesterday I finally went for my first run in 3 days. It was overcast and windy, but the rain stayed away. I ran the first 5K with my husband at a slower pace (34:XX) and then another 2 miles by myself for 5 miles total (in 53:XX).
2. My long run this week isn’t going to happen. So I think I’m going to try and split the distance over several days and just have a week of “medium” runs. I’ll keep the pace easy. Back on schedule next week. Does this sound like a horrible idea? My long run this week was supposed to be 12 miles. Last week it was 11, next week 13. I think I’ll be okay. But I’d love to hear other people weigh in on this.
3. WHEN WILL THE RAIN END? Okay, I feel bad complaining about this. At the end of the day, the weather here is pretty sweet. But since I live in a place that gets 300 days of sunshine a year (please don’t kick me) a few weeks of rain feel like TORTURE. Any tips for running in the rain? I wear a hat to keep the rain out of my face, but any others? Do you wear your Garmin in the rain? Sometimes if it’s raining hard I’ll start the Garmin and then keep it in my pocket.
