it's NOT crazy to exercise when it is cold
Friday, January 18, 2013
I used to drive around and see people exercising when it was cold out. I always thought they were crazy. Seriously- why would you walk or run outside and have to wear a coat or sweatshirt, earmuffs and gloves when you could do it inside and not have to wear all that extra stuff?
I know now- it is invigorating! Working out outside is a different feeling an makes me feel energized. I am not sure if it is because of the fresh air or communing with nature but it is wonderful and satisfying.
I walked yesterday. not sure if it was over 30 degrees or not but it wasn't bad after I got going. I walked around the lake- not sure if that is such a good idea because it is mostly dirt trail and so it was a little muddy in spots.
I tend to trip over uneven pavement or slip on wet surfaces so I have to watch where I am going but enjoyed the fresh air_ and boy I did sleep good!
