This is my neighborhood today. It’s pretty but it can go away now! I don’t have a lot of tolerance for snow. Pretty for 5 minutes then I start feeling it cramping my running routine and wish for spring soooooon!
So, yesterday before Mr. Winter decided to stop by for a visit, I opted not to go for a 3 mile run as scheduled because of ice. Now i did not note particular sections of ice on the ground as I drove my route on the way to work, however, I didn’t want to chance injury just to say I got a run in. So I opted to skip said run. On the way home of course there was plenty of ice and snow as the storm was just getting warmed up. So I was at two days of no workout which bugs the hell out of me especially after eating a piece of this:
This is the birthday cake that we devoured last night for Honey’s birthday. Consumed after two days of no workout. Needless to say today I was bound and determined to work it off. It ended up being a very good workout. After all with 18 inches of snow outside and growing what else did I have to do except work it. So I created a home made circuit workout which was 10 minutes on the eliptical then on to arms. From there I took it to obliques and then sit ups on my medicine ball and then squats. Three times through and I was a sweaty mess. I had forgotten how much I like working out at home. About a year or so ago I was somewhat jacked for a 44 year old. So I have this nasty storm to thank for the reunion with my home gym and a better than average workout for a Tuesday. I need to get back to that because honestly I think it’s better than when I go to the gym to work out.
