I suggest going to the dr to get some medication then!
I much prefer winter running. I get really overheated and dizzy when running in the summer. If you go on a weekend late morning it can be beautiful.
I dont tend to run outside after work as its too dark and I dont feel safe (so go on a treadmill instead).
If you try running before work you might be able to see more of the scenary?
Also, running gloves might help. My hands go painfully cold in winter, so I have lots of different running gloves.
went out running yesterday afternoon it was a beautiful day the sun was out but still had that crisp sort of bite in the air wasn't sweating my ***** off but then i am kind off lucky that the hours i work allow me to get out during the day it might be a different story if i had to train in the evening when it's dark
....because anything you can achieve in the winter you'll surely be able to surpass when spring arrives.
I hate Winter running too, so this is the only thing that spurs me on.
It'll be the shortest day soon then days will be getting a minute lighter each day!!
I much prefer summer running, but as an early morning runner it is nice watching the sun rise (assuming it isn't hidden behind grey clouds!!).
I like running when there's a decent snow fall.
I'm just a big kid really.
I like it because in my local forest it's just me, the occasional other runner and dog walkers.
Rather than the hoardes of children, families that insist on all walking in one line across the path and tut when you expect at least one of them to move out of the way, dogs that never normally go out much and are completely uncontrolled by their owner, people who only get their bike out once a year and ride in what seems like the highest gear possible, pedalling at the slowest speed possible and weaving across the path so much that it makes you wonder if they are deliberately trying to hit you!
And because it's quieter you see squirrels, rabbits. birds and deer lot more often. I stopped to watch a Kingfisher the other day in the pouring rain, no on else around just be and the Kingfisher.
But the downside is the lake often floods and I end up having to run through the water and doing most of my run with very soggy feet but it's worth it to have some peace and quiet
I like it when it's really cold and you get tiny icicles on your eyelashes.
Na D2D. Might give that one a try when I have a foggy night.
I love running but I hate winter. The cold. The wet. The dampness. Horrible if its really cold day. Give me spring and summer and I will be very happy.
The Alarm goes it's half past six, christ almighty it's sunday morning, oh why the hell am i doing this, the walk across the landing, the turn down the stairs is staggered by one last look at your warm Duvet Cover, what the hell i'll have a kip on the sofa later on. the walk to the end of the drive, a last look back, plod on you feel the cold, ten mins on your out on your own, the peace the quiet, the open road, the feel of freedom and no one around but you and a few choiceful tunes,
That's exactly it for me - apart from half an hour earlier
Of course! I take martian invasion reenactment very seriously! The mesmerising green mist , swirling and hypnotising, try to look away, try to run but can't....... then BAM! Phew that was a close one.....off and running
Oh and Richard Burton.....that voice......
I feel weird now
D2D - lol. I think i'd quite like to stalk you when you run. You'd be a most amusing stalkee
I could stalk you and try and guess which bit you were listening to based on your behaviour
Not that I've ever actually stalked anyone or even contemplated it, but, if I was to then I think you would make a most excellent stalkee.
And getting back to the winter thread, I would imagine that one of the positive aspects of winter is that you are probably less likely to be stalked (unless of course you are reenacting WOTW and then you're just asking for trouble)
D2D - curses! foiled again!
TurboElli - awww I feel quite sad for you now. That's sounds awful. Get yourself a treadmill and crank the heating up!
