I am sitting in Boston, and it is snowing. The snow was preceded by a very cold day, and after the snow, a chilling rain.
We have all run cross country races, and perhaps even, track races, in weather like this. We will keep providing workouts though the end of the year, mostly focused on giving you a bit of a change and some rest before the outdoor season begins.
If you get a chance today, in a dry, non snowy climate, consider a 5k today to see how your fitness is at the end of the season.
Saturday, December 17, 2016: Warm up, run a 5k race today, cooldown. If the weather is too miserable, and no major race, get in a nice run in the snow, just dress warm and stay visible.
Week 17: The end of season is here!
The FootLocker is here! We just had the NXN this past weekend, and now, the FootLocker is upon us. Keep your focus and get your workouts done. Rest, hydrate and stay focused. Also, think about the www.hokaoneonepostalnationals.com next week!
