Rainy Day Run

This morning when I left for school, it was balmy and warm, but as the day progressed, it got cooler and cloudier. My students complained that it was COLD out! And they hunkered into their hoodies and jackets. Personally, as the day progressed, I was thinking, "Man, this is good running weather!"

So, this afternoon I laced up my shoes and headed out into the "brisk" 60 degree weather for a run. The cool, overcast afternoon was the perfect running temp, and even though I got drizzled on, it felt like a great run. All in all, I ran 5 miles -- the farthest since the marathon, so it was good to get out there today.

Maybe it remain cool for tomorrow's run as well.

Ahhh, I am soooo jealous! I keep telling other bloggers that I am jealous of their running weather! I would have ran my pants off today if I had that weather! I haven't run in rain yet, but I think a light drizzle would be refreshing and cleansing for the soul!

jess: regarding meters into miles...400m is a quarter mile. to do my intervals on the treadmill i wrote out the splits of my entire workout so i would know when to run and walk and clock them on my watch accordingly. to do it in my head would have been utter madness.

you could do it on a track or on a loop that you know is 400m.

garmins are so smart, i'm sure you could have it alert you when you've run certain distances?

hope this helps.
