Here's to the Winter Warriors
Monday, February 18, 2013
I remember there was a Spark article about winter workout and winter blues. I couldn't really relate to it because we don't have snow or really cold weather here.
Well on Sunday, I do my long run, but this Sunday, when I woke up at 4 a.m. it was cold. I could hear the wind blowing. I went to the bathroom and then decided I am going back into my bed and snuggle up. It was 60F. That's cold for us here. So, in bed I remembered the article and said wow if I had to train outside in the snow, I can see that as a deterrent. I visualized myself in a tam and gloves and winter jacket lifting my legs to run through the snow. But how do you keep your toes warm? Only so much can go into a tennis shoe.
I did go out to exercise but it was 5p.m. I had on long pants and a long sleeve shirt. I did my run, stretched and jumped in the car. It was still cold. The beach that I passed was desolate, so was the park and so was the route.
So I raise my glass to winter warriors.
