Observations from the treadmill
Saturday, December 07, 2013
Those of you who have read my blogs through other Winters know I am NOT a cold / slick outdoor running fan. That's what treadmills were created for. I did get out and do a few minor errands, and the new coat was toasty. Once I did those two or three things, I stayed inside, watching old DVD's, and doing some cleaning. I popped in one of my favorite classics: Chariots of Fire. You also know from long readership that I can't just sit there while the runners are running on screen... so I did some intervals during the movie.
Observation: 6 miles an hour is an easy jog (10 minute miles). It didn't USED to be. I allowed myself to think back about the process of becoming fit, and the process of maintaining that fitness. One does need to keep up the activity, or the cross training or something. It wasn't easy... but as those of you sharing the journey know... it sure is worth it!
Tomorrow's workout may well be sponsored by Mother Nature, as they are telling me 2-4 inches of the white stuff before nightfall tomorrow.
And it is HOT VEGGIE time of year... I oven-roasted cauliflower as a special treat food for myself.
Hoping all my Spark buds are safe and warm! LIFE is good. Spark on.
