Well, my outdoor running lasted from Saturday until Monday.
The weather has driven me back inside, and onto the dreadmill!
It’s not the driving rain that’s the problem, really. It’s the really high winds that have cancelled ferry sailings across the West coast. There was a time today when I could barely walk upright!
And so, after the elation of running in the fresh air, and at a decent pace, I was back to grinding out a slow run tonight. But I got it done, and feel
smug better for it now.
I’m taking a rest day tomorrow, so hopefully I can get back outside on Thursday 🙂

Wind bad here last night did not realise it till out there. Hope it goes so you can get put soon
Thanks, hope it will blow itself out overnight!
Winter just needs to END.
Yeah, any time about now, please!
I’m so fed up of the wind and rain now and totally ready for spring! I’m on a rest day and I’m quite glad as it’s pretty windy around here again with some heavy showers passing through. Fingers crossed for later in the week!
You’ve earned some dry, calm runs, that’s for sure!
I was outside today. Well, I’ve been running outside all winter – I don’t know how different it would be if I had a dreadmill at home, like some lucky people do! The winds have led to some interesting training experiences for me too over the last few months. However, today it was refreshingly calm – it took me about 30 minutes of running to figure out why it suddenly felt so easy! 😉
Ohh, lucky! Mind you, I know you’ve had some really tough runs this winter!
I am managing to get outside 4 times a week. I just have to commit to doing long ones to keep my mileage up! Just bought Yak trax or whatever they’re called in case it gets wintery again. Which it looks like it might. You’re doing great, anything, anywhere is better than nothing!!!
Thanks! I’ll definitely be investing in yaktrax next winter!
I did my first trail run today – the head wind stopped me in my tracks a couple of times!
Well done on the trail run, especially in the wind!
Treadmills suck! But when it’s windy you have no choice. We’ve been pretty lucky with the weather here but it looks like rain is forecast from Thursday through Sunday. Maybe a rain/snow mix so not quite spring yet.
I think we have another few weeks to go here, too!
At least you got it done! It was supposed to rain today, but I got in a run anyway. It did start to sprinkle right when I finished!
I’m sticking to Hal like glue!
