It's cold here!!! -27*C & I have a scheduled run today. It's suppose to be like this ALL week. I knew the temperature was going to drop so I did my LSD (12km) on Saturday as appose to Sunday. And I have 2 scheduled runs this week that are 7km each. Do I brave the cold, bundle up & run. Or do I dust off my elliptical or go for a spin on my spin bike?
Normally I would just do something else..BUT I'm training for a half marathon in March.
I've been spoiled this winter with my training as the weather has been great...now it's just freezing out. I'm thinking I should just brave the cold, as it could be this cold the day of the race. (And yes the race will be still going if it's -30* as it's called the Hypothermic Half) SO do I suck it up & prepare myself for possible freezing weather on race day or do I stay inside where it's nice & warm? What to do? What to do??
I'm also questioning my new thoughts...trying a triathlon. Sure I can bike & run...but SWIMMING?? & do all 3 together (I've never even done 2 on the same day)!!! YIKES. I can swim okay...It's not pretty sight, as I don't have proper form. I'm thinking about getting it over with, stop thinking about it & just try out lane swim tomorrow morning....but I'm scared. I've seen some of the lane swimmers at night & they're hard core & not to friendly. I have heard before that the morning swimmers are nicer & alttle more laid back. BUT...I know I'm gonna be SLOW & I'm just scared. What are the swimmers rules...Can you join a lane with someone else in the lane? How do you know which lane to go in?? What to do? What to do??
