As most of you know, winter storm Nemo hit on Friday into Saturday. I knew I needed to run Saturday, and figured it would be on the treadmill. However, that would require me shoveling my car out in the morning…
So I was like ok fine, I can run outside…I’ve ran in 3 degree weather before, I can run in 17 degrees. Then I heard the wind howling outside and saw it was going at about 25 mph and was unsure. I tweeted about how I wasn’t sure if I was going to run because of the crazy wind, and this is the response I got from my running coach, Marc.
So I went out for the run, and told myself if it was too bad I would make it a 2 mile run instead of 3. I actually felt great and despite going at a bit slower pace due to the snow, it was an awesome run.
Snow makes for such beautiful, serene runs. If only it wasn’t so dang cold! I wanted to do 3.5 miles, but ended up doing 3…but not intentionally. I did a 1.5 mile out and back route but somehow it added up to 3 miles? Not sure how that happened…
Anyway, I also got negative splits!
Overall, it was a great run and I’m glad I went. As the saying goes, “I really regret that run…said no one ever.”
How do you push yourself out the door when you reeaaaalllyyyyy don’t want to go?
