They say March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, but this year it seems it's coming in like a fish. It's only the 8th and we've already had nearly five inches of rain. Which should be no surprise, since we had over three times the normal precipitation for the month of February. I still hold some solace, though knowing that winter will be over in about two weeks and warmer temperatures are on the way - a warm rain is far better than a cold one.
After taking most of this week off from running to let my sore legs heal I decided to take a risk and instead of using the treadmill at Messiah's Fitness Center, I went out for a little over an hour during what I perceived to be a break in the rain. And the first five miles were misty, even a littly drizzly, but generally weren't bad. But then it started raining more heavily and I got soaked. I logged 6.9 miles today, enough for me to top 10 miles for the week - half of what I normally consider "minimal." Hopefully by April the rain will subside, the temperatures will warm up and my legs will heal so I can get back to running a normal training schedule.
