Walking Between Showers

The past couple weeks has been very wet and it is difficult to find times when I can go walk and meet my movement goal for the day.

Here is an example from last week. You can see the dark clouds in the distance.

I made it back home before the rain started to fall.

Tonight it is a different story, I am watching for gaps in the rain but I don’t think they will come. I am getting ready to bundle up in some wet weather gear and go out and walk for 15-20 minutes to meet my daily movement goal.

Should I build on my 53 day streak or should I just stay inside and keep dry? I should have just walked earlier in the day.
