Friday Five 2.0 – Winter: Grumble Grumble Grumble


It’s Friday and I’m linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup!
Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostesses and visit some other bloggers.

This week, the topic is: Winter Fitness Rants

I have many but I’ll limit it to FIVE:

  1. It takes so friggin’ long to get dressed to run outside!! Shirt, vest, jacket, tights, two pairs of socks, gloves, hat, etc.


2. And you look fatter wearing all those layers. No arguing that winter running clothes are sexy.

3.  There’s nowhere safe to run. All my favorite paths are covered with ice or snow or both.

4. There aren’t races every weekend. Just ONE real race in February. I am going through withdrawal.

5. I don’t own a treadmill so I have to run in the cold, wind, ice and snow.  Wah…wah…wah. Poor me!!

  1. I hear you on how long it takes to get dressed! Also, I never quite know what to wear – how much is too much, but I don’t want to be cold, either! You should come to Texas this time of year – plenty of races here.

  2. Totally all the clothes!!! It takes me longer to get ready and some days I feel like one outfit is an entire load of laundry! But can I say Indiana weather is being so kind right now! I’ve been out on my bike 4 times this week! We’re going to hit 71 on Monday!!! I’m loving it!!!

  3. Luckily we haven’t had any icy weather this winter. It sucks when we do because people don’t clear their sidewalks and/or the snow plows clear the roads ONTO the sidewalks. I think I have the same jacket you have on in that last pic!

  4. I don’t have a treadmill either, so it’s do or cry. But it makes us tougher mentally and physically! we can do hard things and cold temps! 🙂
