When you're a runner, the weather matters. You need to know what's coming to best prepare for your runs and races -- what to wear, how much to drink, when to run (or not), etc., etc.
Yesterday, I should have paid a little more attention.
It was hot. And humid. And then there were storms. And, of course, one big ol' storm rolled in right when Owen got home, my regular running time. So, instead of heading out for a run I made a quick dinner and we ate early and I figured I would run after putting the baby to bed.
Which is what I did. But before heading out, I checked the radar and it appeared to me that I had an approximately 30-40 minute window before another storm would roll in. So out I went.
I made it about a mile in to my run when the sky went black, I heard thunder and started to see some lightning.
Yeah, I turned right around and ran as fast as I could, fingers crossed that I could out-run the lightning. So, what had started out as an easy run on the schedule turned into a little less than 2 miles of speed work. Fast speed work. Fast, uphill speed work.
And still, I got pelted by sheets of rain and some hail.
I really need to fix my treadmill. Sigh.
