Warming Up

Yesterday’s Run: 5 Miles

Yesterday went extremely well; about a 9:45/mile pace (great for me), no feeling of lead in the legs, a sweet soundtrack going as I wound through local streets. My body has definitely warmed back up to the running, and I look forward to the actual training beginning tomorrow. I’ll be posting my training schedule too, after tomorrow morning’s 3 miler.

Tomorrow I’m looking into purchasing some compression socks. Does anyone have any thoughts on these? My ankles often become sore. Do they help?

The weather is calling for a crappy 60% chance of rain for tomorrow. I’m going to have to run through it, until we look into purchasing a treadmill….this should be interesting.

Have you ever had to run in the pouring rain? Good or bad experience?

  1. Running in pouring rain – that happiness has not yet been mine; only steady drizzle w/ occasional bursts…but this week promises to be much wetter – we shall drip together!

  2. I admire your determination for running in the rain and for even wanting to use compression socks (sounds dreadful). Good luck with your training.

  4. We used to play lacrosse in all sorts of weather. Nothing like not being able to wipe the rain and mud off your glasses under a helmet.

    the rain shouldn’t be a problem for you.
