Too much of a good rain

Usually I like to run in the rain. Wet clothes don’t bother me and the rain cools the body down. I have to watch for wet feet and get thicker socks to prevent blisters, but otherwise rain is just fine.

However doing a ~2 hour run in a pouring rain is a bit too much. 7:20 min/mile pace at 150 bpm means a recovery run for me. Again, I was not able to push as much as I liked. I don’t know if it’s about rain or my legs are just tired.

I’ll try to look at my recovery 6 miles today. If the legs still hurts, I’ll cancel a 12-miler tomorrow. The most important this week is to do the 17-miler and 10-miles MP on Saturday and I want my legs fresh for that.
