    In need of runners/ joggers help?!

    I have started jogging every day. For weight loss toning and fitness. I am really getting into it and enjoying it.
    I am after tips on keeping going in snow and ice?
    I have heard its on the way and i really dont want to have to stop. Im worried about slipping in ice.

    Is there anything you do to help keep it up? Or any good products / grips etc. Any help would be appreciated

    going to lurk around on this thread....

    I avoided all winter races last year but not this year. already started to get slippy near me and I just slowed down my pace, helped a little bit. also avoided all patches that look wet.

    all I can say is, use the treadmill. the dreaded treadmill... yes its boring but its better than an injury.
    im dreading doing the long runs on it (16 - 20 miles!)

    yeah I have two types, more padded type for shorter distance and less padding for longer distance.

    if I wear the wrong ones I can tell straight away!

    think they do just clip on, I haven't used them before but they should arrive tomorrow or Saturday!

    O wow marathons! Id love to but never get enough time to run more than 3-4 miles a day!maybe in the future.

    You have two pairs of trainers? I wasnt sure how important it was until i started researching this week.

    Wow! Thats so good. Ive been looking at the yaktrax and they have great reviews so i will get some!

    Can i ask what size you ordered and your trainer size?
