A big deterrent to physical fitness is the weather. Mother Nature has her own ideas sometimes about when you’ll go for a run or a walk or a fitness class outside. But guess what…zombies don’t care about the rain.
That’s why it’s vital for you to continue training in all kinds of weather. Listen, I’m not encouraging you to go out in Hurricane Matthew and get a run in just to keep in peak physical condition. (Today’s hurricane threat is a real one…take it seriously.) I’m just saying that if you had to choose between a hurricane and a flesh eating monster, I think you might take your chances with the wind and the rain. (But don’t do that today!!!)
Yesterday, I did a little rainy day recon and I really enjoyed it. The rain was cool on this hot Florida day, making the distance not feel so far. I enjoyed my (non threatening) rainy day run. And now I feel pretty confident that the elements won’t slow me down. If I need to run in a torrential down pour to avoid getting my brains eaten, I’ll do it.
You have to decide for yourself, survivors. Are you willing to do what it takes? Maybe it’s a gorgeous sunny day, maybe it’s pouring out. Maybe you live in Siberia and there’s a freaking blizzard…actually you, Siberia guy…you’re probably pretty save from the zombies. Carry on!
