If you're not in Oklahoma then let me enlighten you... it's typically 115 degrees outside these days. Which makes it hard to run outside.
I have some running friends who are much more hard core than I am and will get up early or wait until after dark and run in the hot, muggy heat.
I'm lazy. I stopped running outside almost a month ago and have been sticking to the treadmill either at my house or at the gym.
Sometimes I feel bad or like less of a runner, but I also don't want to drop dead at the park by my house.
On the plus side since I started running inside and using mynew Jeff Galloway training app I've shaved 6 minutes off my 5k time.
It's still a slow 39 minutes... but hey it's a start.
