Two teaspoons of cold air

November 22, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last night I was pretty determined to get up and go to the gym. But after walking my dog and realizing that I could handle temperatures in the mid-20s, I decided to go for an outdoor run. It was my first non-treadmill run in a while and it’s the first run in such cold conditions since March. Although I was running much slower that I thought I was going, it was a refreshing run. The cold, fresh, low humidity air was just what the doctor ordered.

I’m not a big fan of running in the cold, but today was definitely a break. It also gave me a chance to blow my nose like my wife hates … fellow runners probably know what I’m talking about … but it was really a relief.

Although I’ll be doing a lot of treadmill running this winter, today was a good example of what I want to do at least once a week over the next couple of months if it’s cold — just get outside and run a few miles and not worry about pace.
