Will I Ever Be Able to Run Again?

Thursday, February 11, 2010

We have soooooo much snow everywhere, I don't know when I am going to be able to get out there and train for my 10-miler. It's 2 months from today, and I have not done a long run since Jan. 24 because of all the #$%^&ing snow. I took a drive to check out my running route today, and there is literally 7 to 10 feet of snow on the sidewalks, pushed there from the street by the plows. Needless to say, I am getting a bit concerned about being in shape by April 11. I don't even have access to a dreadmill.

I hope that sun shines hot and strong this weekend and melts the stuff! But then again, I heard there's more snow on Monday!!

    Same here. Outdoor exercise is tough right now. Let's hope they're wrong about Monday.

    Totally understand the frustration. Sure is hampering my exercise, too. But you can go to the local school and ask what time they open and ask the gym teacher if you can come before school opens and get some time in.---once they are open again---ours have been closed all week.

    Sorry that Mother Nature is not cooperating with your running goals at the moment. Enjoy the weekend with your son!

    Can you run in the street during less busy times- AGAINST traffic? I so feel your pain. I finally made it to the gym today.

    It's tough to train outdoors in winter. It will melt soon. Good Luck. emoticon
