OVERALL

The last few weeks running has really been a struggle for me.  I’m sick of running in cold temperatures and for some reason my legs have literally felt like dead weight when I’m running recently.  It’s been frustrating since I had hoped to train for a spring PR, but I finally had a good run yesterday so hopefully we’re headed in the right direction!

  1. Danielle, This winter has been especially horrible in the northeast so running has been a problem for everyone in those areas. You are a strong athlete and it should come back quickly. So glad you had a great run yesterday….you are definitely ready for a big half PR, or any distance for that matter! And all that yoga and cross training helps alot. Core is everything during those hard parts of a race.

    • Thanks Pam, it was definitely a tough winter! I’m excited to get started training for a half marathon PR – I was so inspired by both you and Christine yesterday, I honestly think that was a big part of why I had such a good run yesterday!

    • Yes! Hopefully it’ll start warming up soon! We’ve had the occasional nice day here and there but then it drops back to freezing – hopefully it’s almost over!

  2. Yep. I have had ENOUGH of the cold. I know exactly what you mean by having “dead” legs…UGH. It’s so frustrating. I’m looking forward to warmer temperatures and finding my love of running again this spring. 😀
