The New Year has certainly been interesting. The frigid temperatures are really impacting runner’s schedules. Even some of the toughest threw in the towel today with a brutal wind on top of the single digit temperatures. The weather today for sure made running more brutal than exhilarating. The boardwalks where you could almost always see at least a few runners were desolate.
Check out some winter running tips now that winter is really here.
Temperatures are supposed to climb all the way up into the 20’s on Tuesday and by the weekend into the 50’s.
So don’t give up hope. A few days off sometimes is good and will give your body some time to recuperate and you will be fresh for your next run.
