Today as usual I went for a nice training run in the morning. A few minutes after waking up the weather changed and it started raining with lots of wind (I was already expecting that because I keep tabs on Windguru to plan my kitesurfing sessions ;-))
But unlike kitesurf which can be really dangerous with stormy weather, in running you can at the most get all soaked up to the bones and face some extra effort because of the wind, but that won’t hurt you.
And as they say what doesn’t kill you just makes you stronger so there’s no reason to skip a nice run since I had the time (which is always difficult to find especially for more than 10km run) so I did went and I believe that never I had been so soaked up, because it really rained a lot.
In the end I believe running in this weather brings even more satisfaction and it prepares you to endure a little more effort, which is something I need to go through my first marathon.
Here is a short video from this training run:
I would post the running length and time but my crappy Nokia decided to halt because of all the humidity so I only know I have run for about 2 hours, trying to get in sync with marathon pace which for me is somewhere around 5m40s/km.
