We're at the midpoint of this winter season, and for some, it's been a long season already, especially if you live in the northern US. The groundhog didn't see his shadow today, so maybe spring is on its way......
For some runners, this is the time when their motivation falters, when their enthusiasm for our sport succumbs to the darkness and cold of this season, and the winter is only half over.
For others though, this is a great time to be on the roads, with crisp fresh air in the North, and tolerable temperatures in the South. For these runners, motivation is just kicking in, Spring is coming, and winter is already half over.
Listen in to this discussion of getting started on those winter days (and nights), the right gear to help you succeed in less-than-perfect conditions, and how to beat those winter blues.

Don't think that the Runners Round Table is limited to "experienced" runners - it's not! We truly want to encourage runners of all experience and backgrounds to contribute. We're also proud of the internationally diverse community of runners and additionally hope to further grow participation outside of North America.

On Wednesday, January 5 we spoke about the importance of recovery in any training plan. Training is all about (1) Stress, (2) Recovery, (3) Repeat. The importance of giving the body a chance to adapt to the stresses under which it is placed. And about how necessary it is for each of us to learn what our body needs on this front, and to listen to our bodies.
