WHAT?? Its raining! Omicat, what are we going to do?
Definitely have to drive 30km/h and stop for no reason to try find the windscreen wipers.
I dont really mind winter as long as I am able to avoid being whiplashed by rain. The combination of gale-force wind AND rain kinda makes me grumpy. I plan my days carefully. Underground parking always taken into consideration.
That being said I did not go run today. There were breaks in the rain but I just dont have warm enough running gear. My little skorts and tank tops will NOT suffice.
I went into New Balance today to get some winter stuff and almost fainted at the prices...long running tights R350, long sleeve winter running tee R250 and water resistant running jacket R450.
I have to say though that after using proper sports stuff I can never go back to the generic Edgars, Mr Price stuff. Nuh uh. I need the real deal. It just means I will have to budget for said 'real deal'. There is no comparison in the fabrics used - the sports technology in clothing today is phenomenal.
Yes, I bought the tights. I had to. For now I can wear a tshirt, a long tee and a hoodie while I run but I need LONG stuff for my legs!!
I am planning on doing this (at least once)) in July so I need to get out there, come rain or shine, hence my sudden rush to get suitable attired for grotty conditions.
