Who’s ready for warm days and cool nights with a nice breeze coming through your open window!? I’m afraid we have a little bit more of winter to go folks! Yes, this has been a cold January—perhaps the coldest that I ever remember, and I grew up further north than I live now! I was taking a look at my running stats today and I ran nearly 20 more miles during the month of December than this January.
Morning boot camp class was canceled a few times due to 0 or below freezing temperatures. In a way, though, I might just be getting used to the cold (I mean 17 degrees working out yesterday morning actually was not that unbearable. And today’s 28 degrees felt downright balmy.) But I’ll admit the bitter cold has a way of getting in the way of workout routines. I have had my fair share of mornings when I roll back over in bed after I see how cold it is outside. Working out inside, though, is such a very boring proposition. But sometimes it must be done. Given the cold temperatures, I have managed to have my share of fun times and here are some highlights…
An evening walk through the neighborhood to make some snow angels with friends.
A morning boot camp class being pulled on a sled (and doing some bear crawls with the sled and belly flop of my own creation).
And some other cold morning workouts when I actually got out of bed to get to them and brave the freeze! I’m not going to complain about the cold until after I get my skiing in for the year, BUT then I’ll be ready for green grass and cool breezes!
