Running from the rain

After taking the last two days off to rest and recover from my trip to North Carolina, I was so glad to take off on a run this afternoon!

Speaking of being out of town, I have to give a huge thanks to the ladies who filled in for me while I was gone. I was so impressed with their guest posts that I want to go out of town again soon, ha ha. Thanks girls!

Back to today…it had been cool and cloudy all day, hovering between 45-50 degrees.

At first, I was not thrilled with this but once we got going, it was perfect. Until it started raining…sprinkling really.

But somehow, we managed to finish and not get too soaked. We must have been outrunning the rain because this was quite speedy for me!

  • Time: 48:17
  • Distance: 5 miles
  • Pace: 9:39/mile

Woo hoo! Not bad for a rainy Monday. Tomorrow will much warmer as will the rest of the week. Looking forward to it!

How was your workout today?

  1. I had a fabulous workout today with my sister at the gym. I am taking a week off from running until my foot completely heals….which is great because it is POURING out here lol

  2. I love the springtime weather…not too hot and not too cold. I’m not, however, a fan of the rain 😦 It seems we will have 2-3 beautiful warm-ish days and then a day or two of soaking rain. I guess that’s what makes it spring, though. You’re really rocking the times on your runs, girl! You’re gonna do so great in your 1/2!

  3. Great workout! Pretty speedy too for a rainy day! Go you!

    I haven’t worked out yet today. It’s hot outside and I’m sort of dreading it…
