Rickey ....er....Search (Hiya Rickey
) is spot on about running steps....If you can gain access or sneak into a college hoops stadium, concert venue, etc... and run steps during where you live's crap weather months....when the climate gets friendly, you're ahead of the game..
Otherwise, as I used to experience, every year in Ohio, I would go through the hell of getting back in shape for 5-7 weeks before I'd get into my comfort runs.....
Been in great weather spots since '92, so aint a problem anymore.
i run in winter just not much (up until this year I loved running in cold!! maybe im gettin old?) ...there isnt much snow where im at so its mostly mental...its so much easier to run in heat as u mentioned...
u know what finallly got me running long distnaces easy? my ipod..now i have something to switch on when i get bored... i use "runkeeper" and "imapmyrun" apps, hit me up if u download it, well trade use info...
