Need I say that it has been a challenging month for running outside? All these polar vortexes are messing with me! One day it was 6* outside, and windy. I had all the good layers on, and was totally comfortable except for my feet. They hurt so badly from the wind blowing right into my shoes that I only made it 3 miles. I need to find a better way to keep my feet warm when it's that cold.
I ran on the treadmill a lot. Thank goodness it is fixed. The treadmill is in the basement, and it has been rather cold even in the basement lately, because it is unheated. Usually our basement stays between 60-70 degrees regardless, but with these polar vortexes our basement temperature dipped down to around 50 degrees. I know this because of the thermometer that hangs right in front of my treadmill. At least I stay cool while I run!
I ran 138 miles total in January. I guess you could say I was running from the demons of January. It would be nice if February had milder weather, but I'm not counting on it.
