Chilly Hot!

Friday, November 04, 2011

I've been getting back into the habit of walking / jogging from my daytime office to my evening private practice office and back to my car afterward as a way of working in some activity on Thurs. / Fri. I figure it's a great way to keep up at least a baseline of jogging so that come next May when the Binghamton Bridge Run comes along www.binghamtonbridgerun.
I won't have TOO much work to get ready for the 5K.

Nice sunny, brisk sunset on my there...BUT: was FREEZING on my way BACK! Low 30's, thin jacket, no gloves...BRRR! Tucked my notepad and calendar book under my arm, hands into pockets and got jogging! Around 2/3 of the way I could FINALLY feel some warmth building and took my hands out of the pockets.

Another block and I could unzip the jacket a little.

Next, unzip all the way...

NEXT? Fling the jacket off and carry it on my arm.

NEXT? Hop in the car and ride all the way home with all the windows down cuz I'm just dripping wet and hot...! :-)

Oh and hey, I've just GOT to give a shout out to 4-A-HEALTHY-BMI's latest blog series: Rules for Humans! DO check it out...SO much common sense, plus a good dose of strategies she has found so useful in her journey:

DO stop by and check it out!


ps...looking like Mother Nature will allow for a GREAT weekend of cycling ahead...woo HOO! My bike's been gathering WAY too much dust lately!

    Great visualization of your walk/run - you're such a good storyteller and you can really tell how much you enjoyed getting MOVIN' to beat the cold. Will check out the blogs...have a great Sunday!

    Like you, I'm really enjoying 4-A-HEALTHY-BMIs blog series . . . and your new wallpaper is gorgeous.

This changeable weather is really challenging . . . very chilly here in the early morning, frosty . . . and then quite quite warm mid day, and today sunny too!

Wish I could send a bowl of my pea soup your way!

    I feel the same way when I go to water aerobics in the morning -- it's freezing when I first get out there (especially if the wind is blowing) but by the time I'm half way through the class, I'm grateful for every stray puff of wind. Ain't exercise grand?!

I've been giving a once-over to the Rules for Humans blogs. And you're right -- they're great.

Love the connection,
