This week we were asked to blog about the following question. "Now that colder weather is here do you find it more difficult to get your exercising in or do you find transitioning to more indoor exercising difficult to do?"
I use to walk/jog outside no matter what the weather; Iíve even jogged when it had snowed. When it rained, it made me feel like ROCKY! If Iím doing yard/garden work, I prefer it to be a little bit warm so I can sweat; although I have been forced, due to the urgency of getting something done, to do outside work in the heat of summer. When I do, I take several breaks, drink water and soak my head under cold water.
Now, though, my main source of exercise is indoors doing housework or an exercise DVD. I enjoy doing Power Yoga, TurboJam and ChaLEAN Extreme, although I havenít done any of these in quite a while.
So basically, if itís really hot I donít like to exercise outside unless itís early in the morning. In the spring and fall are the best times to take a walk around my neighborhood. I have a 2+ mile route that I take, and I enjoy breathing in the fresh air, listening to the birds and watching the squirrels, and enjoying the beauty of Godís creation.
