Today was a beautiful day in Belleville, clear skies and no wind (always a plus in the MidWest). Todays workout consisted of ab and arm work and 6 miles this evening. Was lucky that I didn’t have to wear full pants and a running jacket. One of the things I hate about cold weather running is the layers of clothes. I’m one of those people who tend to “run” hot. Meaning, after the first couple of miles I’m usually regretting all the layers of clothes I’m wearing. There’s nothing worse than trying to keep your pace while shedding the jacket, readjusting the iPod, dropping the iPod, removing the gloves putting them in the jacket pocket you just removed; dropping said gloves and finally tieing the jacket around your waist. So, I try to wear less, knowing that I’ll warm up soon.
