Training: Treadmills, Rest, and Cold
I thought last week would bring a race but the cold weather ended up changing it. Sunday morning the windchill was -2 and to be honest, that just didn’t appeal to me. Plus my brother was in town for the weekend, so I wanted to enjoy time with him.
Will I ever race again?
To be continued…
|Monday:||Easy treadmill run 60 minutes|
|Tuesday:||10 mile run in Chambersburg with my father in law|
|Thursday||Easy 60 minute run|
|Saturday:||Easy 60 minute run|
Where to start?
I spent most of the time running indoors, and I’m okay with that. The weather this week was bitter cold, and while I do enjoy running outside in the teens and sometimes the single digits, sub-zero degrees don’t appeal to me.
I had a workout planned that day, but I just felt groggy and tired. Both mentally and physically I wasn’t there, so I scrapped it. I don’t have any regret of that choice.
Sunday: 2X3 miles (1-mile jog in between)
(6:36, 6:31, 6:27)
(6:31, 6:27, 6:25)
The workout itself felt good. I didn’t feel as though I was working at maximum effort which made me excited. I think I could have pushed it faster or longer, but this felt appropriate to stay healthy and based on previous workouts.
The week wasn’t ideal, but I’ve decided in 2018 to limit my complaining about the weather. It sounds trivial, but you can’t control what mother nature brings, just how you respond.

Living life and trucking through the winter weather this week. I don't love the cold and spent my fair share of time treadmill bonding this week. . Still a runner no matter where I run. Today's workout was 2×3 Miles with 1 mile jog in between. . . (6:36, 6:31, 6:27) (6:31, 6:27, 6:25) . Felt good about my decision to watch another movie inside.
