My daughter had practice last night at a field that is a good 20 min drive from our house. It's only a 1 hr practice. Since I have no money, and therefore do not shop (heehee), I usually use this time to exercise. No point in driving home for that short of a time.
Living where I do, and preferring to run outdoors, chances are you're going to get wet - alot! A light rain is really no biggie, it's the norm from now until sometime in the spring. Last night I was expecting a light rain. And it started as a light rain. Then it poured! By the end the dog and I both looked like drowned rats. But we got 4 miles done and ticked off the schedule.
When I got back from my run the coach yakked at the girls for a while so I took the opportunity to do a few sets of walking lunges, squats, & tricep dips on a picnik table.
The last thing I wanted to do when we got home was head downstairs to the gym for a weights workout. My husband had nicely made me a fire (which I was extremely thankful for) and I really just wanted to lay by it and watch a little TV. Which I did, except .....
... for the next hour, during every commercial I did abs, core & arm work (sit-ups, planks, push-ups, dips....) It wasn't with weights, it wasn't in a gym, but it was a workout. I can feel it today!
I'm thinking that I am going to need some better clothing for all this wet running. Any suggestions? I'm SO not a hat person, but will it keep me a teensy bit drier? Can anyone recommend some sort of jacket that will keep me mostly dry without holding in all the moisture or making me hot? I don't really have the money for it, but I don't want to go through this whole season soaked to the bone, and running is my sanity during these times.
Have a great weekend! I have plans to watch a tear-jerker movie with a girlfriend tonight, just one soccer game to watch this weekend and a running date with friends ... oh and a boat-load of housecleaning to do that I couldn't do last week since I was so sick (but I'm trying not to think about that).
