Ground Hog Says 6 More Weeks

Mark, my boyfriend, text that Bootsie (my cat) just got up and turned around then goes back to sleep. That is what winter is like here in New England! Wake up to below zero to single digits, blizzard, and repeat. Now how do you train for Boston marathon or early spring half marathon? Be smart, running below 16 degrees you can easily get injured. Be flexible, you might have to reschedule your runs to different day and/or different time of day. When it is really bad go inside to run on track, treadmill or elliptical. Be smart and be safe where you run! Today, I’m hoping to run loop repeats of 1 mile with wide shoulder. This year, I decided St Patty’s Day 10K for my first race of 2022 instead February. Be wise when and where you run! Be flexible to cross train snow shoeing or cross country ski! Try to find ways to enjoy winter! Be safe and healthy! @pamhouck
