I highly recommend walking in the rain with your bathing suit on...I have done it and it is fun! I was thinking next time...I should bring a bar of soap and kill two birds with one stone...I would not recommend walking in the rain if it is thundering or lightening though...walk on sparkers!
I am doing way better with my walking program since I started walking indoors with the walking videos on Dr. Oz's RealAge site. I still walk outdoors in comfortable weather but with indoor walking the heat, rain, wind, mean dogs, traffic, and blisters pose no obstacles.
The program is in two parts of approximately 15 minutes each and is adequate but not grueling--the equivalent of a brisk 2-mile walk. It also requires very little floor space--I do it in my air-conditioned hallway. Plus, the video provides me friendly company and appropriately-paced music.
