Getting outdoors

Thursday, March 07, 2013

So it was super cold in Texas this morning when I decided to go outside. I got up early around 6 and went to the park to do my second day of couch to 5k. I still struggled with the program but did not cheat or give up on myself. It was actually nice to be outside. Everyone asks me why i don't just "run" at the gym when it is cold, but for some weird reason i feel like running should occur outdoors. I'll be going on a retreat this weekend so my exercise will basically be cut out. I'm planning on waking up early and going for a quick walk before things get started.

I seriously doubt i'll be spending much time outdoors this summer in the crazy Texas heat. It gets above 100 here quite frequently. I may surprise myself and be a runner by then though. This was just a quick blog for the BLC challenge. I'll blog more when i get back next week :)

    You know what's great about hot summers in the South??? How AMAZING it feels to swim laps in a nice cold pool! I'm looking forward to doing that myself here this summer. In Seattle it was always too cold to swim, but now there will be sun and warmth!

Maybe that would be a good option for your sticky Texas summer?

    I would probably move to Texas if it weren't for the heat! I don't handle hot well at all! I like 85 degree weather; anything higher than that I start getting anxious for Fall!

    Oh man, I hate Texas summer's! It is honestly miserable. So I know how that is lol. I am not a big fan of running, I think if I lost more weight I may enjoy it, but I know that when I do go walking/jogging I much prefer to do it outside because time sees to take so long on the treadmill. haha
