What to do about...the rain.
« on: September 09, 2009, 06:34:15 AM »
Nothing really screws with a training schedule quite like the rain. Not much to do except workout indoors.

Anybody have any good tips?

train in it. rain is an obstacle. training in perfect conditions on perfect obstacles  in perfect shape is pointless.
Rely on yourself. Rely on your body. Rely on your training, instincts, and heart. Everything else is a crutch.

you should train in the rain but I would advise to stay off rails, fences, and things of that nature because it becomes extremely easy to fall and hurt yourself

It's raining like crazy were I live right now, and its been kinda diffucult to train with out falling, busting my ass, and getting extremely wet from the ground...

I wear gloves, a light hoodie with thermals, and ant-rain(Insulated,waterproof) sweat pants or something of that nature when it rains. 1 time I've almost faceplanted into a wooden beam when I was practicing precision jumps in the rain, so be careful, and take your time in the rain.

But anyways, conditions and other things will not always be in your favor when your life really depends on it, so best you try to  over come as many obstacles (Either nature, man -made, physical, and mentally) as possible.

You could have had some fun...if it wasn't raining.
You could have made it to the bus on time...if it wasn't raining.
You could have been on time to work...if it wasn't raining.
You could have seen the birth of your child...if it wasn't raining.
You could have saved your friend's life...if it wasn't raining.
