As Lordi wrote, the cold weather isn't letting up here in the Nordics for a while. As this week's long run was so tough on my right heel, I want to do what I can to avoid injury.
I've been considering an alternative option for next week's long run, which needs to be around 27K. There's an indoor track in the city center underneath the main athletics stadium. It's free and open to the public, so I'm considering going there. It has two lanes and it's 546m, which means I'd have to run it 50 times to complete my distance.
Officially you're not allowed to run with headphones, but I've heard that nobody checks. I've just checked, and it says you can't listen to music - which I don't. I listen to podcasts. And you have to run in one direction, so I suppose some dizziness could kick in.
Has anybody tried this kind of running? Any tips?
