This was a Saturday, and I waited for several hours for it to stop raining. But it never stopped. So I went ahead and made the best of it despite the rain.
My workout was a 1-hour run, with most of it being in the rain and splashing through water puddles. This slowed me down enough that I just didn’t lose much weight during the workout. I dropped from 75.0 kg to only 74.5 kg. Compare that to yesterday, where I lost .8 kg instead of only .5. Also, it’s pretty common for me to lose a full kilogram when running for a whole 60 minutes.
I previously wrote a blog post and explained that even rain won’t stop me from working out. For some of you, your only choice may be to exercise outdoors if you want to jog. I also don’t have any other options. I can’t even run in place in my apartment building because it would shake the other apartments. So when it rains, my only option for a jogging workout is to just get out there in the rain and get it done.
If you can brave the inclimate weather, I would do it. But this depends on how hard it is raining. Of course, you don’t want to run in a downpour. However, you are going to have to come up with some kind of game plan if it frequently rains in your area and causes you to cancel your workout sessions. Doing pushups, crunches, and similar calisthenics in your own house is something you can do if you have no other choice. The point is that your weight loss or maintenance is probably going to suffer if you are constantly canceling sessions due to weather.
On this Day 48, I finished the run at 6 in the evening. Thus, I still need to eat one more meal. This might cause me to gain weight today. But I won’t get down about it because I at least got out there and finished the run even though it slowed me down. Even if I gain weight, there is always something positive to focus on.
The jump to 75.4 after eating and drinking was even more than expected. Still, though, I kind of expected to gain weight today because the loss was so big yesterday. And when combined with the fact that I had to run slowly due to the rain, it didn’t make for a good set of factors for positive results today.
Despite the late jump, I somehow dropped all the way back down to 74.2 kg in the morning. That is a big drop. I have no idea what is going on the past 2 days, but my weight is dropping nicely at night. With the huge drop, I managed to break even today.
