I live in IN, but I'm pretty sure based on national news, we're not alone . . .
Show of hands who is SICK of the cold, damp, cloudy, rainy, windy weather??????
My second question is aimed at anyone who has followed a training schedule with increasing long runs -
have you ever been fearful of the upcoming long run? A week and a half ago we ran 12 miles - and did pretty well (the last mile was hard), and this Friday we're planning on 13 miles (actually running the full course for our half marathon next month). I'm very much looking forward to seeing what we're in for, but very much frightened that I won't be able to make it. I'm not a "real" runner, but I've done the long runs in this training cycle of 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 miles. Do you ever worry about an upcoming long run or is that unique to me? And the event you also get nervous or worried, what suggestions/advice do you have to "get over it"?
Question3:What is the piece of gear/equipment you absolutely LOVE the most (related to running)?
Thanks everyone for your answers - I'll put them to good use!
