The next time I go out for a run I’m packing my pockets with some thank you cards for the people who do a fantastic job of shoveling their sidewalk.
Despite the cold I managed to get out for a 5k on Saturday and an 8k this morning. I haven’t been running outside since I injured myself, but after blogging about it Saturday morning, I was pumped up by the comments and decided to brave it. This morning was beautiful and sunny and despite the -12C temperature I was hot for most of my run. However, it is really exhausting running on snow-covered streets and sidewalks. Although almost everyone shovels, there are some people that do a fantastic job. When you run on sidewalks packed with 2” of snow or have to hurdle a 2 foot snow bank at the end of a sidewalk, it is such a treat to get 50ft of dry sidewalk. Thank you!
So, I’m up to an exhausting 8k. I have just under 7 weeks left to train to get up to 30k at the end of March. Any tips?
