I will work out in the pouring rain as planned. I won’t exercise outside in thunder and lightning. Otherwise, I have found it much better to be wet for a few hours than to alter the plan or resequence days. Resequencing is to be avoided, in my experience.
Everyone is different, but I think Z1 in the rain is fine, even fun in an odd way.
Of course, I would select my route more carefully. IOW, limit exposure, avoid slabs, stick to stable trails.
How does the weather forecast impact your training? I mostly do my longer hikes/runs in the mountains at weekends due to work constraints. I wanted to ask you guys how you handle bad weather? Do you hike/run despite rain or do you substitute your outside training with gym treadmill workouts? I am asking this question because it is motivationally extremely challenging for me do my longer (2-3h) Z1 workouts indoors … on the other hand I do not want to take a bad weather forecast as an excuse not to do my workouts outdoor …
Thank you for your input
