Tonight I ran in the rain and it was nice. I enjoy running in the rain although I haven't been able to do it much lately. I think the last time it was cold because I was able to wear my jacket so that my iPod was inside the pocket. I have a armband that I don't use much but it has a full plastic cover and said "sweat resistant" on the box. I bought it to wear when it rained, but I was worried about it tonight. I ended up putting on a long sleeved shirt over it and it was ok.
It wasn't raining too hard and my ponytail was only damp. It had stopped by the time I was done. I had planned on running out to the park for Dave's softball game. I decided at the last second to just run around my neighborhood so that if the weather got worse I could just go home instead of being stuck somewhere between my house and the park. The weather ended up not being bad at all though and I definitely could've gone to the park instead. Oh well, better safe than sorry.
My hamstrings have been really tight lately. I think it is from a combination of not stretching well enough when I'm done running and from trying to "sprint" the end of my runs or kicking it up a notch here and there. That is something that I haven't been doing until recently. My last 2 runs I've spent a lot of time stretching after and I'm going to start doing yoga so hopefully that will help.
It's my birthday, and I'll run if I want to
