c25k - week 5 - rain cant stop me
Monday, April 08, 2013
Week 5 is interesting because it ramps up at each day.
So today, the first day, it was 3 5 minute runs, interspersed with 3 minute walks. So that one was pretty easy, and it proved to be so. Wednesday will be 2 8 minute runs, with a 5 minute walk in between. That sounds ok too. Friday will be the challenge, with a full 20 minute run.
As for today ... it is time to run. Go outside and check the weather. It is overcast, and a little breezy. Hmmm. Do I run outside, or do I go to the rec center? Check the forecast on the computer. The chance of rain in the next hour is listed as 0%. Really? 0%? OK. And off we go.
Of course, I didn't get 3 minutes away from the office before I felt the first drop. Too bad. I've started now, and I am not giving up or turning back. I got drizzled on a few times while I ran. Hey, what's a little water ... I was sweating anyway. It is pretty warm out today, so not really a problem.
