|Andrea running in the snow on Friday morning|
I had a hard workout scheduled for Saturday, so we ended up having to move it to the indoor track at the Olympic Oval. We got in a good effort and I'm excited about the upcoming Rock and Roll AZ 1/2 Marathon this upcoming Sunday! Its nice to have that facility on days when its impossible to get in a quality efforts outdoors. I don't mind cold, but when all of the roads are covered in snow and ice, you have to adapt (and I'm not a treadmill guy).
We are definitely in a really cold spell for a few more weeks. This weather is a lot different than last winter! Personally, I like the challenge it presents. I think when you have a 6-8 week stretch of really tough weather conditions, that makes you stronger mentally for the rest of the season. If the weather is good all the time, its easy to get soft. And you also have to learn to take advantage of the good weather days, and think hard about how to make those workouts really count.
