|Yeah, not really into face planting.|
I know conversion charts show running on the treadmill equivalent to about 30 seconds slower on the road, but it's the opposite for me. I ran at 6.3 MPH with 0% incline (no way I was going to even 0.5%), which translates to 9:31 mile on the treadmill and 9:56 mile on the road.

On Friday I did tackle the snow and run outside-- I turned to Twitter to ask Jack Rabbit for advice.
@nyc_allie Go slow, don't over-stride, wear good quality winter running clothing. Fresh snow can actually be fun. Ice is a different story.The snow was just starting to stick (so it may not count as 'running in the snow'), but the road was more than a bit slick in places. I took it slow over any patches that looked a bit ominous, and ended up having a great 5 mile run! Now hopefully next week's 1/2 marathon will be like the 5 mile run and NOT the treadmill run this week!
