Moving it indoors

Screen Shot 2013-01-20 at 8.54.52 AM

I am supposed to run 8km this morning.  Supposed to, as in it is on my training schedule for the week.  I am a pretty hardy cold weather runner, but -31 is my threshold.  It's not fun. The icy eyelashes, the numb butt and the hours it takes to warm up.

So today I am replacing my outdoor run with a spin session inside on the trainer.  As as side note, the first run clinic I took was a learn to run format in Winnipeg in 2001.  I remember running in my snowboarding jacket and all the clothes I owned.  Maybe I have improved my speed over the years because I have shed weight in polar fleece in lieu of technical clothing.

For those of my fellow Edmontonians brave enough to take it outside today, I tip my toque to you ; )

Also on the agenda today: House hunting!!

Happy Sunday,

  5. Sorry I missed this! I often go inside but I don't have easy access to a treadmill or track right now so I am trying to get used to the colder temps : )
