Just like so many of my running friends, this season has forced me to take my training to a treadmill. I'm grateful that Robert and I decided to buy one for the house early in the season. Aside from our snow blower, it's probably the wisest investment we've made. I've never been shy of running in the cold. Many of my best runs have been during dark NYC nights in freezing temperatures. In fact, my Half Marathon PR is last year's NYC Half and if memory serves me correct, it was 10 degrees F at the start. But running out in the PA burbs with all this ice and snow is another story. My running paths are knee deep with snow and the black ice on the streets make it difficult for this major klutz to keep her balance.
|Just outside my neighborhood. Yes, it's beautiful. But has anyone seen my running path?|
|Grateful for snow blowers, treadmills, and cute husbands|
|Practicing the art of mid-run selfies to pass 7 miles on the mill|
|Last night's 5 miler became 3 when I just couldn't keep the motivation alive|
|BAM! 9 miles in the cold winter air! Soooo good|
Anyone else have a similar experience with treadmill training? I'd love to hear about it!
