Change of Plans......

So this morning I was planning on get up and going running, if the weather cooperated. It didn't. We woke up to about 2-3 inches of snow/ice with it still sleeting.....uck. I just wasn't in the mood for the elliptical.

The roads were horrible and everyone was going 20 miles an hour on the 65 mph highway. My defrost was cranked on high and the wipers were going full blast, but the sleet was freezing on my windshield instantly, making it impossible to see.....I had to stop and scrape my windshield 3 times on the way to work. How do people even run in this kind of weather?

Honestly, I think only if they have a "screw loose" as my mom used to say. I think you did the right thing - we got a lot of rain late last week, and some places got ice, and I took that day off. You could always climb stairs in your house as a substitute and get some hill work in that way.

There are times where it is smarter to not run, in that weather you likely would have fallen and really hurt yourself. Plus, you're a morning runner like me, it would have been even harder to see where you're going, even with a headlamp.

Some people might go out and run in that weather, but I think it is only to show other the can do it. It sure isn't going to help your training any. Better to get on the treadmill and do a real workout.

I considered running because it was so pretty...but I was really scared of the drivers, seriously people are kinda dumb
