Winter is coming. The dreaded dark, cold, damp days of winter.

After a summer of long miles and race goals, your body and mind start to crave a break from running. Add travel, holidays, and cold to the mix, and most of us fall out of our running routines and out of shape.

But, of course, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Today I share my strategy for getting through difficult months when training feels like a chore, and coming out the other side primed and ready to jump back in.

Here's what we talk about in today's episode:

  • My training slump. What gives?
  • The type of training to maintain throughout winter
  • Why you should try something different
  • The one training strategy I always recommend
  • Running in the cold
