Up to now the weather has been pretty mild for this time of the year but since the start of the week the weather has suddenly got a lot worse. Not only is the weather a lot colder but the last few days have also been very wet.
The cold doesn’t really bother me, I am quite happy exercising in cold weather as I have a tendency to heat up quite a bit while I am running. I however don’t feel the same way about running in the rain.
I find raining weather to be generally miserable so I struggle to motivate myself when the weather is like this. I put off my run yesterday for this reason but I was determined not to do the same today.
It was difficult to get the motivation and the first km was rather miserable but I do feel much better for doing it.
I managed 6.25km and my time wasn’t too bad either. Here is a picture to show just how horrible the weather was
I am training for a challenge next year to raise money for cancer research, if you would like to donate here is my just giving page:
