Cold Breezes

Saturday, October 26, 2013

Time to renew my relationship with my treadmill soon.
The first and last 5 minutes of today's walk/run were pretty miserable. It is sunny and lovely outside. I am determined to expose my self to as much fresh air and sunlight as possible while I still can.
That time however is coming to a swift end.
I am a baby about being cold. I do not handle it well at all.

Today the wind has teeth and my fist sprint actually hurt. Not only was my body unhappy with the cold but my skin did not appreciate the flaying either. I eventually warmed up and found my stride (my face continued to suffer from wind burn) but the cool down was unpleasant and all I wanted was to get back inside.

Have you missed me treadmill? Don't worry, I am returning.

Oy, today was another day when I really had to scrape together motivation. I did it however and now the rest of the day is mine.

    I think the thing I hate most about running in the cold is sucking down air that is so cold that it hurts my throat. That's why I avoid it, but I've decided to walk to work as much as possible this year. At least I get ten minutes of walking in that way which is better than nothing. The good news for you is that whether you're outside or on the treadmill, you're getting it done! Keep up the good work!

    I decided this fall / winter to run as much as I can handle outside. I ran in a 5K last February in Rehoboth with all of training inside on the treadmill and I really did not handle the cold very well, so this year will be different.

    I ran a 5K this morning and the only bad parts where when I was in the shade. Thankfully the wind was not too bad (in Wyoming, DE).

    emoticon I am from Wisconsin and it is getting very cold here also. I miss my walks to the fitness center (Yes, I am truly a baby about being cold) I do not like the winter that is right around the corner but, I am grateful for the fitness center and the month of Feb that we will spend in FL. At least I can walk every day for that month. emoticon
