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!!
