Yeah, so that happened.
Show of hands, how many of you are training for a Spring full/half? I imagine a good portion of you are #BostonBound and eyeballs deep in frozen long runs about now. Sucks.
So what’s a runner to do if it’s insanely cold outside and all you got is a treadmill option or nothing?
Well, you do the treadmill work. You get on it, push start, and get your workout done.
- Download the Serial podcast. You’re welcome.
- Catch up on Downton Abbey. And The Americans. The entire season is available on iTunes.
- Call your Mom.
- Catch up with your BFF.
- Invite a slower/faster friend to join you. Birdie and I do this all the time. It makes the miles FLY and pace isn’t an issue.
How do you get through the treadmill long runs? I love a podcast. I love TV but I would be watching it on my phone or an iPad and it’s too small. I know. Picky, picky.
Quit complaining about the treadmill and go out and run!
