Rain, What Rain?

Tuesday morning I was planning to debut my new shoes. Unfortunately the weather was slightly uncooperative. As we headed to run with the Stroller Warriors, it was raining. Nevertheless, we continued to our rally point and found 20+ ladies with strollers waiting for the rain to stop. The weather gods were smiling upon us and it stopped after just a 10 minute wait.

So we headed out. Five minute warm up, then a ladder interval of race pace followed by the same time of recovery (2-3-4-3-2). We knocked out 4.37 in 39:35. (Mile 1 - 9:10, Mile 2 - 8:31, Mile 3 - 8:34, Mile 4 - 9:25, Last .37 - 10:32)

Great workout except for the fact that 10 minutes before we finished, the sideways rain came. Luckily, I was prepared with my Bob Weather Shield! Reagan stayed completely dry. I, on the other hand, looked like a drowned rat:

Regardless of the weather, it was a great run and a wonderful group of women to brave the elements! And while I didn't get to test out my new shoes (I wasn't about to let them get wet), I had a blast.

Finished up the day with an improvised Crossfit workout. I don't have access to all the proper equipment, so I make do with what I have. Today's WOD: 5 RFT - 20 box jumps, 20 pushups, 50 sit ups. (20:39)

What's the saying..."If it ain't raining, we ain't training!" Great job!
