I think I was tired this week! It was a recovery week, so I cut back the number of days I was running and got a little more rest. I tried a new warm hatha yoga class, but found that I didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected. I also ran a 5K on Saturday and still managed to get my long run done on Sunday. My legs were tired, but I guess that’s kind of what this training is about – learning to continue running on tired legs.
I’m starting to worry about my training now that the sun is setting incredibly early. It will be dark by the time I get home from work. So I have a few options – run in the dark, run at work before the sun sets, or run on the treadmill. I’m guessing there’s no right answer here and I’ll probably end up with some combination of the above.
So friends, how do you stay motivated to train in the winter? Any suggestions or winter survival tips?
