Today, National Fitness Director and Olympian Carrie Tollefson is here to answer another question for our "Ask Coach Carrie" series. Karissa, Wendy and Audra all wondered: "Would love your opinion on how valid treadmill training is in the colder months ... compared to how much effort we should put in to find those indoor tracks or brave the cold."

Today, National Fitness Director and Olympian Carrie Tollefson is here to debut "Ask Coach Carrie." Her first training question comes from Elissa Weller, who asks: "I'd love any tips you have to increase speed longer periods (for me, the goal is to try to get that elusive sub-30 5k, but for others it could be a different time goal). I feel like I make some progress with the intervals in the fall, and then I lose all of that progress when we move indoors for the winter and never seem to gain it back in the spring."
