I cannot think of a single thing that I accomplished today. That is never a good thing when there are lots of things to do! I do not think I will even be able to muster a decent blog post!!!!
I did get a new Runners World magazine – already forgetting my resolution not to buy them off the stand. I really need to get a subscription. Anyway… the issue is about cold weather running and I learned a few things:
- Mittens are better than gloves – I need to get some
- Your lungs will not get injured from breathing all the cold air
- You should start your run facing the wind so on your way back the wind is at your back (This sounds good, but Saturday during the 20-miler the wind was in our faces the entire way and I am quite sure that we were facing different directions with every turn)
- Lots of people train in snow and ice all the time. I cannot imagine how hard that would be. When we got snow the other we I tried to run in the snow and I barely made it 100 feet. It was very difficult!
It looks like it is going to be another cold weekend for my long run!
