Running and The Winter Season

Well, winter is in full swing in my neck of the woods. Temps are in the 20-40 degree range and we’ve gotten smacked with snow numerous times, sometimes as much as 8 inches over night. We’ve had the nasty dangerous mix of rain, sleet, snow & ice (all within a 36-hour time frame).

So I’m charged with trying to figure out how I’m supposed to improve my running skills with this type of erratic outdoor weather. The last time I planned to go for a run after work I almost broke my ankle WALKING to my car. Needless to say, I didn’t go for that run.

I’ve been debating on getting the bare-bones cheap globo-gym membership so that I can utilize their treadmills. Of course my CrossFit gym has no treadmills or any machines for that matter, so I’m trying to find solutions to my problem.

Here’s the thing. My pocketbook is only so deep. Paying a membership so I can run on treadmill??


That would mean I’d have no excuses. We all know how much I hate running, but if I’m paying for a membership I will have no choice in the matter. I’ll HAVE to go. (queue my sarcastic sigh)

Then there’s this problem:

I’d hate to be THAT guy.

How does your dignity recover from that one?? Whew.
