I actually like the rain, so even in foul weather, I just continue to go for my regular walks outside. I never let the weather deter me from getting plenty of exercise.
The weather really doesn't impact my exercise routine at all because I can still swim and walk my dog in the rain, and use the indoor elliptical machine. And if I want to get even more exercise, while staying warm and dry, I walk the aisles at Raley's.
I play tennis indoors several times a week. I also have a lot of handyman projects that are largely indoors. Handyman-type work is always a great way to get lots of exercise.
I try to walk around inside of my house a lot and climb up and down the stairs several times a day. And if I do actually go out, I park as far away from my destination as possible, so that I get plenty of steps in, even if it means getting wet.
I try to just go about my business as usual, even if it means getting wet walking in the rain. And I'm grateful, when I get wet exercising outdoors, that I don't have to deal with the rain very often. And I think about how the rain is actually very beneficial because it washes away bad things and reduces the risk of wildfires.
