Prudence wins again...

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Darn her! I don't know if I like her, as she denied us a chance to paddle on Lake Erie this evening. High winds and cool temps meant that common sense reared its head, and we went out for dinner instead. Tigan is dragging me to the gym in the morning, and then we are going to try again to go paddling. Weather is definitely iffy though, so we will have to see what we think tomorrow after our workout.

Cooper was happy taking longer walks today, so he got two one hour walks. That plus some yoga made up my workout today. My legs were fine yesterday after that long, hilly run on Sunday, but today my quads were so sore. I decided not to run today. I will get on the treadmill tomorrow and see how far I can go. Then I will try to get at least a short run in on Thursday. I am not running on Friday as the 5k is this Saturday.

I think I want to try and run year round. I am just a bit concerned about snow and ice during the Winter. I wish I had a treadmill.

    I know that winter weather. My brother golfs every possible day that he can. And I know he has golfed when there was some snow on the ground! chris

    Your diligence is an inspiration!
Treadmills are often available used, or are you near a motel with a fitness room? sometimes they allow local residents to use their equipt for small fee or check with your neighbors and see if anyone has one you could rent for small fee or return of a favor? all else fails? try a gym membership or YMCA? Son;t give up...let us know how it works... I don't have a good solution since we live five miles out in the country but am still trying to figure a way.

    Sounds like a great day. We aren't taking Maggie walking with us much anymore. Her age is catching up to her and she is dragging her back legs some.
She just poops out too fast.

    I'm with you on the treadmill wish.

You are doing great and I know you can handle the winter runs.

    I do use my treadmill quite a bit, in the very hot weather as well as the cold or dark.
Where I live we have a used sports store (Play it Again Sports it is called) where you can get quality equipment for a great price. And they will take in from a person for resale as well - so if you have anything to trade.. I hope you can find one!

I am so glad Cooper is interested in walking again. It may help that the temps are so much cooler right now. You are on the south side of Erie and I am on the north shore of Ontario so we get a lot of the same weather. It was cool yesterday! I wish I had either a treadmill or a bike to use in the winter here but in our little apartment there is just no room. How is getting your mom's room cleared out going? Are you still moving in with them? How is your mom doing now? Hope she is back to herself soon. Have a great week.

    Treadmills are great to use when the weather is bad or it is dark outside. Keep an eye on Craigs List.. you might be able to pick up something pretty cheap.
