Running In The Rain


Recommended Posts

We've had a lot of rain lately but it hasn't stopped the hard core runners. I get a bit envious seeing guys like this. I can't run anymore because I had a knee replacement (probably made necessary by running too much).

Brings back memories.  I ran track and cross country in HS and some college in Seattle.  Running in the rain was one of the greatest things.  I, too, have a new knee but my end of running was my back could not take it anymore.  I miss it, and the competition, but walking and bike riding works for me now, albeit at a little lower endorphin level.

Exactly what I do now--bike and walk. C'est la vie!

Very nice.  The latest variation on the Japanese exercise, is "rucksacking" - quick walking while wearing a backpack with some weight.

Somewhere in my basement I have two five pound ankle wraps that strap on with Velcro. I got them when I was training for marathons and I recall using them once.

Ha.  No wonder why your knee was replaced.  Ankle weights are killers.
