So this last week we have had a huge dump of snow. It’s been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me. One minute I am in my glory enjoying the beauty of all of this white stuff and the next minute I am dreading going outside. For the most part, it’s gorgeous. Sun is shining today. Life is good.
I managed to get a few runs on the treadmill during the snow fall but I knew long term, this is not where I want to be spending my time running. Plus I need to get used to winter conditions to prepare myself for the Hypothermic Half. This means … new sneakers!!!! We took a trip up to Runner’s Sole the other day to get fitted for my daily sneaker as well as to learn what runners use in the winter.
After trying on a few different winter running options I went for the Peregrine 7 ICE+ by Saucony. These shoes are designed for winter running and I can also use them on the trails in the winter, if I decide to do any trail running. There is a grip on the bottom to keep me on my feet while running on slick areas.
Today I am going to take these for a spin on my first outdoor run this week!
For my daily driver (or runner) I tried on quite a few sneakers and landed on another Saucony. I have never bought Saucony before so we will see how my feet feel after a few runs.
I have taken these for a spin on the treadmill and I LOVE them. I love the look and feel and I look forward to many kilometers to be explored in these new kicks!
This past week I have had to increase my kilometers to 37km. This has been a hard task for me on the treadmill. Seriously, kudos to the people that can run on the treadmill for more than 4 minutes. YouTube, music, running inspo pictures couldn’t keep me motivated. Yesterday I only managed to get 3 km before deciding I would rather increase my next two runs over putting in anymore time on the treadmill. I think it’s also important for me to make sure I’m getting my run done first thing in the morning as the longer I take my runs into the day the harder I find them.
Sadly we are dealing with really cold temps so this sissy girl is stuck on the treadmill until it warms up a bit more.
