That is the question when the weather is bad and the going underfoot is treacherous.
But, that is only relative I suppose, and when you live somewhere with a benign climate like I do, a few inches of snow or a week of freezing temperatures is something of a shock to the system and I am sounding like a bit of a wuss.
The point is that most of us can not go out for a run every time we want to, be it a bit of snow, an injury or a disaster of some other sort.
I have a back up plan for such occasions.
I bought some weights a few years ago and I use them with some circuit training. I clear the furniture into the corner of the kitchen and I have just enough room to do my simple routine.
The trouble is; I hate it!
I would much rather be out running, but sometimes it is just not possible.
Lately it has been because of silly little injuries in my calf muscles caused by my recent ventures back on to the track.
The rest and the strength and rehabilitation exercises I do help the injury recover quicker and prevent it from happening again as soon as I set foot onto the track.
My theory is that doing something is always better than doing nothing.
Also, it works.
