I would really love to get outside and run again. I am definitely a morning runner. Not only can I find reasons not to run as the day goes on but I just don’t do as well. The cold temperatures and darkness in the early hours don’t bother me. I’ve gotten great cold weather clothes and lots of reflective gear – which includes flashing lights! But in the darkness its still hard to see my footing and usually there is slush or ice or the dreaded black ice. I constantly hear “you might break a hip”. How come after 45 or so, no one worries about me breaking a wrist, or an ankle or leg – its always my hip……..

Anyway I think you will thoroughly enjoy this video.
So what do you crave? Do you have tricks to control them?
Do you have ways to make the treadmill tolerable?
