Rain!! And Rain. :(

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Just checked out the 10 day forecast for my area...looks like it's going to rain every day for at least the next 8 days. Very happy, because we always "need" rain in Florida, very sad because it's going to put a crimp in my walking schedule. :( I'm trying to be proactive and make a plan for the next week...I LOVE my walks, and don't want to forsake them just because of a little junky weather! It looks like most of our rain is going to happen in the late afternoon/evenings, so I think I'm going to have to try to focus on waking up early and getting the walks in after I take the 9 year old to the bus stop and before my hub wakes up to go to work...

It probably won't kill me to miss a week of walking, but I don't want to lose momentum over a little rain!

    I love to run in the rain (as long as it isn't raining so hard that you can't see). Maybe this will be a great new experience for you

    You are in Florida - it is warm - just put on your bathing suit.

    Yes, as others have said...umbrella, raincoat (a comfy -light one) and rain shoes - it does the trick! Believe me, we've been outside for 2 + hours at a time in torrential downpours at soccer games and football games and once you have that stuff - it's not so bad (hot tea or your choice of beverage in a thermos doesn't hurt, either!) Good luck

    How about an umbrealla? emoticon

    I live in Maine and I cannot rely on the weather or I would never walk/jog. Treadmill has been my best friend... ¢¾

    or.... put on a windbreaker and some sandals and go for a walk in the rain? :)
