Raise your hand if you live where it's cold. OK. Now, keep it up if you've recently had (or can generally expect) some significant sleet/snow. Cool. Now, keep it up if you don't have a treadmill (or won't use one on principle!) or a gym membership, but are hell-bent on running. Perfect. You guys/gals are my intended audience for this post.
Basically, we hardcore winter runners have to wave a fond goodbye to speedwork and other more quality sessions for a while. We can sneak them in when it's "nice" outside, but those days can seem like few and far between. Time on our feet is usually slower and more frustrating. Trips and spills? Yeah. We are familiar friends by now -- my left thigh has a huge bruise, actually.
But have you ever noticed how MANY difference surfaces we're dealing with here? Here are just a few I noticed on my usual 5 mile loop last night.
I'm sure you have more to add, so please do so in the comments!
