Okaaay…now it’s winter. It’s dark and cold all the time, and getting out to run is questionable. Winter running is all about maintaining some kind of consistency and not freezing to death. The treadmill isn’t an option, I’m not a monster.
One little step I’ve taken is downloading the WTForecast app. It is not suitable for all ages, but it does take the edge off that first morning weather check.
Another motivation-enhancer is the Running Rogue podcast, out of Austin. The hosts are tough, motivating runners who run down recent races, training and other things running-related. I’ve listened to a few episodes and the hosts are engaging and energetic. Most importantly, they. will make you feel quite guilty for ever contemplating staying on the couch.
