I wouldn’t really consider myself a fair weather runner, mainly because I prefer to run when it is cold rather than when it is warm or hot. Having said that however, there is one thing I really don’t like and that is rain. I don’t like running in the rain, I don’t like cycling in the rain, I don’t even like walking or being out in the rain at all.
Normally if I am planning to go for a run and it is raining I will find any possible excuse to not go out. This often means that if I wake up early for a run and it is raining then I will go straight back to sleep.
Yesterday morning however I managed to drag myself out of bed and force myself to go out for a run despite the rain. This is a huge step for me as despite running on and off for years I have probably only run in the rain a couple of times, if that. Therefore, even though this may sound like a small thing, I am really proud of myself for not just going back to sleep. I cant say that it was something that I enjoyed but I am certainly glad I did it.
