I’m getting wimpier in my old age. Below zero temps and double digit below zero windchills kept me in side for 5 of the 7 days this week. A couple of years ago, I would have been running outside in this ultra cold. But I did work on my mental strength this week by running my 8 AND 10 mile runs on the treadmill! I ended up scrapping 2 short recovery runs because of work and happy hour. 🙂 And I did the core/strength routine 3 times. Yippee!
