Had absolute torrential rain today, NOAA calling between 1 to 2 inches (which is a lot of rain.)
Usually that kind of rain means urban flooding, bad drivers, and so there are added hazards. In that kind of weather I put off runs as long as possible (not so in lighter rain, or even snow.) I ended up being very happy that I waited because it cleared up about 7 pm, and then the temp turned to be about 58 degrees! I swear, though, it felt like 60.
I went out to get in 7 easy recovery miles in my shorts and a t-shirt. I had actually worn my brooks waterproof rain coat but I took it off at mile 3 because the weather was just so nice out.
Hopefully things keep up for my Big Sur training!
I need to get serious about my nutrition this week. I'm up around 173 lbs now, and that's the continuation of a trend that can't continue. I am hoping to drop about 13 lbs now, and I think that should be reasonable provided that I can keep up my running schedule. The other big challenge on my time is sleep, and I think that is one of the things that is keeping my weight in that holding pattern.
