I am not one to shy away from cold weather, but the idea of running in the cold scares me a little. I don’t know how many weekends I’ll be running outside this winter so I had a plan for this winter: work on the treadmill and get faster. I don’t know if this is going to happen, I have to wait and see if my toe is up to it. Any suggestions on how to get faster? Obviously speed work…but anything more specific? I know I can be faster and my legs want to go faster.
Since I don’t know if I’ll be working on my speed (or lack thereof), I need another plan. I may be a Weight Watchers Lifetime member, but I definitely don’t have the trim runner’s body people that you see in magazines or in races. I finally have the confidence to wear what I want, so perhaps it is time to whip my body into better shape so I can wear anything.
I’ll come up with more winter plans as time goes by (I'm debating a Hangover Half if the news from the doc is good on 11/11 and the weather is good on 1/1). Winter can last a long time here so one plan will not make it through the cold winter months (if it is a normal winter). Running aside, I can’t wait for snow so I can get my snowshoes out!
