I am an outdoor runner. Don’t get me wrong, I have a great relationship with my treadmill and after 10 years, it is still going strong. But I MUCH prefer to be out in the sunshine! The wind in your hair, the new paths to explore… such a nice change from the (what some would call) dreadmill. I typically don’t mind running in cold weather and just layer up accordingly.
But COME ON WINTER! You are KILLING me! Even my warmest layers cannot compete with the subzero temperatures we have been having around here. Hot Yoga has been wonderful (if you haven’t checked out Harbor Yoga studios in Dublin, you are missing out!), but this girl is ready for Spring.
I am going to have to get creative, as we are in for another week of negative temps. Update running playlist. Check. Hang motivational posters on wall near treadmill. Check. Hi ho, hi ho, off to the treadmill we go!
Do you prefer treadmill running or outdoor running?
DEFINITELY outdoor. Once I did it, I could never go back on the treadmill. I still do, but I’m not happy about it
Thanks HungryandFit! I agree, I’ll do the treadmill as needed, but can’t wait to hit the trails again!
