    To run or not to run?

    It is 10 degrees, winds at 15 mph with wind chill at -6 degrees. I ran yesterday evening but really want to go run today. I am just procrastinating because it is cold. Should I run or stay inside?

    Go out and run. The first couple minutes are hard. Then you warm up and it's not bad at all.

    Meanwhile I am going to the health club so I ran ride a stationary trainer indoors. Actually it's much easier to run outdoors in thsi cold than ride. After I get back, I'll take my dog out running with me.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Haha, I ran in a race last weekend in a -20 degree windchill. That was enough for me. I'm waiting till spring to start running outside again.

    I went to run, very nice day 10 degrees and a strong backwind, half way. Dressed ok felt good with a 15 mph wind in my face it was a bit cold on the way back, but not much of a face anyway so what the heck. Glad I went but I almost had myself talked out of it. Thanks for the support, it is indoor tommorw.
