Happy holidays everyone! Hope it was a good one.
Another week of training goes by, and I feel good. I’m not looking forward to all the new year’s resolutions to start working out more. Just means more machines are filled with new faces that will eventually disappear after two to three months. Sad but true.
My family went to Montreal this past weekend. I found an 11 mile run for Sunday from another MapMyRun user only to wake up to snowfall on Sunday. That was definitely new for me. I wasn’t the most prepared for the 20-degree weather and snow, but I went at it anyway. Most of the sidewalks were clear, but when it started to stick and cover the paths I got a little nervous. So 30 minutes later, I decided to run back and finish the other 5 miles on the treadmill at the gym in our hotel. I really wanted to push through, but I didn’t want to take any risks in an area I wasn’t familiar, let alone another country where I don’t really speak the official language.
(Translation: Help me)
Any advice for running in the snow, both snowfall and snow-covered paths? How do you handle running in a new place?
