Today I decided to get in another training run. 4 miles with my running buddy CJ! My training schedule had me going out tomorrow, but I looked at the weather report and, yeah, I think I won’t be running tomorrow! I know there are many runners out there that regularly run in temps well below freezing, and I applaud you! But I absolutely abhor running in the wind, especially the freezing wind and the next two days are supposed to be just that. So, I chose to run today and come tomorrow I’ll be happy to do my indoor cross training.
The roads were plowed finally late last night so today’s pace was much improved over yesterday. The packed snow and areas of slush and ice would have been much more difficult to navigate if I didn’t have my Ice Bug shoes. I really do like them. I’m thankful that I don’t have to use them very often, but very happy that I have them when I need them.
This weekend’s “long run” is going to be less than ideal as well. The weather is supposed to be warmer, but I have to go out of town so I’ll be spending some time in a hotel in an unfamiliar area. Therefore, I will most likely end up doing my long run on a dread-, er…treadmill. I don’t like running on treadmills because 1) I find it extremely boring, and 2) when I get off after completing a run my legs feel like rubber. But, I do what I have to do and will do my best to get all 9 and 1/2 miles completed on Saturday evening. Maybe the hotel will have a hot tub! Then it will all be OK.
Happy Running! >^..^<
