This rain is rudely interrupting my running schedule. We're on day two of an almost constant downpour. The rain let up yesterday for a bit around 6:00 and then started back in full force. I haven't seen rain like this in Washington in a while.
What I appreciate about my running schedule is that it's precisely planned out, but there is room to adjust should something come up. I already rearranged my schedule this last week (hence why my 7 miles fell on Thursday rather than Tuesday) because of overtime at work.
It's really hard to run 7 miles after you've just worked 12 hours over night, for the 5th night in a row, after only 4 hours of sleep because I didn't get the call until I had already chosen to not go straight to bed when my weekend started. But I'm not complaining, it makes for a good paycheck.
But it's still raining. And this is the last day of my week and I need to get in my 5 miles today. If I don't, I'll feel like a failure on week 3. I'll have missed a day, and that just doesn't work for me. So I guess my only option is to hope it clears up by this evening. If it doesn't, I'll be one very wet runner.
