Too lazy to go outside

Today's run (treadmill): 25 minutes

It may be odd to say this, but I feel like I've gotten a little lazy in my workout routine. It's not that I'm running less frequently or backing off on my intensity. Not at all. In fact, the amount of time I'm averaging per weekday run is up 4%. What's different is that a third of my morning workday runs have been done of the treadmill instead of through the streets of my neighborhood.

I'm not sure if it's the January chill or my reluctance to spend ten minutes gearing up to go outside, but every night I check the weather and if they say cold, rain or heavy winds, I prep for an indoor workout. That's exactly what happened last night. The news station said light snow at 4:00 AM so I said, "that's that" It turned out to be clear, but instead of heading outside I still hopped on the treadmill.

So I'm calling it laziness even if I'm ultimately working hard. But tomorrow, even with the predicted snow, I have every intention of doing my run outdoors.
