Honestly – I had warm weather gear and still ran outside (this was when I lived in IN and actually got snow and ice – don’t have to worry about it so much here in TX).

is there a school nearby where you could use the track? they’re usually plowed.

don’t run outside if it’s super icy. do whatever you can. if you have exercise dvds or netflix instant, do one of those. if you have weights, use them.

I run anyway!  If you pick up a cold weather running outfit, you’ll actually be pretty comfortable.  And anyway, running in the rain or snow makes you feel like Wonder Woman 🙂

I need to get on this.  I’ve let myself slack since my last 5k (November I think, ack!) but the cold weather burns my nose (I’m a baby, I know 😉 ).  I love to run in the rain though.

We have 2 feet of snow right now so I know how you feel. I recently started doing couch to 5k and I’m doing it at the local indoor track right now. We have one that runs above the ice hockey complex and it sure beats running outside. You should do a little research and see if you can find an indoor track in your town. Ours is free, but I know the college allows people to run their track with a punch card as well.

I live in the middle of nowhere so its either pay $35/month for a gym membership or hope spring comes quickly.  We were gonna buy a treadmill but our house is for sale and its something else to move.

I can’t run when it’s cold outside.  It’s simply too hard to breath.  But, even when the weather is bad, I still walk outside.  I walk a little slower/more carefully, but I feel good when I’m finished.
