Jo on win­ter train­ing

Runner's World (UK) - - Training -

I’m en­joy­ing the chal­lenge of train­ing dur­ing the win­ter months. When the weather’s bad it feels par­tic­u­larly sat­is­fy­ing to con­quer the con­di­tions and com­plete your work­out. It’s also been en­joy­able to wrap up warm and still man­age to get out to the for­est to be ac­tive as a fam­ily. Over the past few weeks, I’ve found the lack of day­light a bit of a bat­tle, though, as I’m sure many run­ners do. There are no street lights where we live in Devon, so I’ve often used the tread­mill for my sec­ond run of the day. Oth­er­wise I’ve braved the spook­i­ness of run­ning along coun­try lanes wear­ing a head torch. But re­gard­less of the weather, I’m look­ing for­ward rac­ing in 2017. Hope you’ve all had a great start to the year and good luck, what­ever your goals are.
