Defeat cabin fever
Sunday, January 23, 2011
Today I had enough of being inside. I love working out, but I can only take so much of running on the dreadmill and on the track inside. We still had about 3" of snow on the ground and got another 6" today. I decided to stop complaining and just get out in it! I purchased some ice cleats and put them on a pair of running shoes I was going to retire (they have about 350 miles on them). It was about 15 degrees F, so I layered, put plastic bags over my socks (old school style), laced up the running shoes with cleats and headed out in the snow! It was a blast! I only went 2 miles because I didn't want to overdo it the first time out in cleats (I didn't want a silly injury from doing something crazy). It was exhilarating and I will be doing it again!
Moral of the story, stop complaining about it, and just get out in it! (You don't have to run, take a walk, shovel, play, enjoy!) Do I love the snow now? no..but I won't use it as an excuse not to get out and enjoy doing something outside.
