You Can Lose Fitness When It’s Raining

I remember telling a friend a very long time ago, that you still get fat on the weekend, as she shovelled piles of peanut butter on her toast, telling me it was the weekend so it didn’t count.

It’s a bit the same with training and rain. You can still get unfit when it’s raining you know, just as you would get unfit if you stopped running due to injury, illness, or misadventure! And it’s still just as hard to get that fitness back.

Here’s a quick run down on what happens to your running fitness when you stop training, and how quickly you can get it back.
