I need to get my miles in, I want to get them in. I do not want to run in 8 degree weather at 5am and am notorious for not running at night. What to do? In previous years I would have skipped my runs, put them off. Never completed them and then been cranky come Sunday when I came up short. This time I mean business, I won't get faster if I don't put forth the effort. Today that means a treadmill run. It was the lesser of 2 evils, barely. We run in the morning and mentally because it's so dark I feel like it's that much colder. There was little argument from the peanut gallery. Get packed and lets roll. I got my miles in and enjoyed myself as much as one can running in place for 52 minutes. Not sure where I will be tomorrow, but am committed to balancing my treadmill runs with road miles. If it could just be a little warmer it would help me!
