My last run: running in the rain
Well my last run was a 5k yesterday, and it went WET and SLOW. And by wet, I mean to say that we got SOAKED.
Yes, friends, I got stuck in a weird freak Florida storm wherein the sky is blue but rain is pouring down. By about mile 2 the rain stopped and we reached completely dry land where the rain had never fallen at all.
Can I just tell you that I don’t understand Florida weather?
But it was my first real run after hurting my hip. We ran slow–around 10:30/mile–and I went with a friend who is recovering from an ankle injury. Add in extra caution from the storm and it was an “eh” run. I think I will be back to normal by the weekend! *fingers crossed*
The best part of the run was doing handstatnds pre-run and pre-rain. It was the second day of the #inversionaday challenge. Handstand kick-ups at the wall make for a fun and quick dynamic warm-up!
Have you ever tried a unique dynamic warm-up to get ready to run? What do you do when you suddenly find yourself soaked on a run? Do you keep running and laugh it off (what I did) or do you head home?
