I wasn’t so fair weather today going out this morning in the rain rather than waiting for it to clear. Actually the reason I (unusually) went running in the morning and in the rain wasn’t because I was keener or more hardcore or more dedicated today. Sorry to disillusion you, but it was more a case of if, I didn’t go out then I would have had to spend the day showering and changing 2 or 3 times, because I had a lunchtime appointment, and as I am going out with my BMF group tonight, an evening run was off the cards.
That is also the reason I went for a slightly longer run to make up, in advance, for a probable pathetic effort at BMF tomorrow morning or failing that (more likely) a token run only at hangover pace!
I headed towards Hyde Park, the rain was beginning to clear on my way out, although I very nearly got a complete soaking from a 94 bus! My smugness didn’t last long as the drizzle increased to a steady light rain as I circled the Serpentine with only the Bee Gees, the geese and some puddles for company. It was quite pretty in a white-out misty, wet sort of way.
