Fitness Friday: It's Freezing Out There!

Holy moly!! The jet stream seriously called my bluff after last week's post about avoiding my go-to running excuses. It has been down right frigid this week! Luckily, the jogging path near our house was kept up well and useable despite the snow and ice.

Things I learned running this week:
  • Running with a jogging stroller is much, much harder than it looks.
  • Layering is your friend.
  • Don't forget to stay hydrated. It is easy to forget when you're not sweating profusely because of the cold.
  • After running in the cold, you will cough like a pack a day smoker.

I also mentioned last week about trying to find a goal to work towards. I haven't nailed down specifics yet, but I'm going to try to find a 5K in January or February to train for, then a 10K sometime in the spring or summer, then J wants us to do the Hershey Park Half Marathon in October. A little ambitious? It sounds it, but if we try, we can train for a half with that much time.

If anyone knows of a fun 5K and/or 10K that fits that timeline in the Southern PA/MD/NoVA area, let me know! I'm excited to find my first race!
