I know it’s hard to get out of bed, or to get those shoes on when it’s pouring down with rain outside, but you will feel 50% more hard core once you have completed a run in the rain. It’s a fact!
Last night at run club we did a 5km course through the domain to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair and back to the store. It rained the whole course but luckily it wasn’t a downpour, it was more of a contact light sprinkle. It was great to see that so many clubbers actually turned up ready to run and didn’t let the water scare them away. They were in high spirits and afterwards they were all very proud of their achievements.
The smart runners came prepared with lightweight, wet weather jackets and a change of clothes for afterwards. I think this is key, make sure you have the gear to make it as comfy as possible and then you have no excuses.
So get those shoes on no matter what the weather is like outside and you will be guaranteed to feel like you have achieved so much more than usual.
Do you brave the elements and let nothing get in your way?
I dare you to give it a try….
