My BRF and I have braved it for almost every run, but today I chose to run on the treadmill. Why? Well I think there is a time and place for pushing through the elements and a time to give in and stay inside!
Reasons to push through and run outside vs. running inside
Outside: If it's cold, but not too cold ex: I ran outside in 2 degrees. I put on layers and warmed up pretty quickly
|between the 2 of us I think we wore 18 layers....|
Outside: If it's snowing! I love snow, it's so beautiful and it makes the scenery better!
|It was definitely snowing...|
Inside: If it's snowing and raining mixture with a lot of it accumulating on my route, I slip easily and don't like to risk it!
Outside: Raining, running in rain make me feel bad*ss, it just does. So when it rains I run
Inside: Freezing rain, ice on sidewalks and roads, again I slip easily.
Outside: Long run, easy run, & steady runs. Pace isn't too hard, More opportunities to stop or slow down if need be.
|Angus, thongs, & perfect snogging is on Netflix, watch it!|
Inside: Speedwork, intervals, & repeats. It's so much easier for me to stick to a harder pace if I'm not distracted or putting too much energy into being aware of my surroundings.
I actually did a really "fun" interval workout today and it turns out I still have a little speed in these legs!
|Try it out!|
Tell me what you think of the interval workout!
When do you decide to run inside?
