Okay, I realize my last post didn't make much sense after re-reading it! You're probably asking why do I have to wait till it warms up outside to exercise inside?!!! LOL! We'll, that's just me. I'm pretty sure I have seasonal effective disorder and I just don't seem motivated to do anything exercise-wise till "the sun comes out" with the longer sunny days of spring. We are already getting some of those warmer, longer days (again, very unusual this time of year) and so I hope to change my exercise life soon.

"I do my eliptical everyday and I do some DVD's also."

I'm impressed, DS9!!! In the past I've been that dedicated at times, but not this winter! But with the climate starting to get a little warmer here I'm hoping to turn that around soon.

(We had our first snow here yesterday (very unusual, since we usually have had several snows by this time of year) and it's supposed to get up to 50 today...so it's melting right off today! Ha!)

Just back from a long walk along the Welsh rocky coast. Yes, RUSSELL37, all the sensory stuff of air movement, colors, textures, the give (or lack of give) of the earth under foot, sounds, smells, the massive space surrounding the sea, ...there is nothing like it. I feel a sense of belonging and being a part of this world so much bigger than myself. Walking in the natural world, out of doors, I know is so very good for the whole of me. Walking on a treadmill, indoors, under the florescent lights of my gym doesn't compete. I'm missing outdoor tennis this winter. Simultaneously, I'm loving hot power yoga. Practicing yoga, I'm looking near, to the space around me and inwards. Walking in nature, I'm looking primarily outwards. Hmm...

I walk outdoors whenever possible, but in winter, most days have to go to a gym.

Besides the not going anywhere, I miss the smells, animals, beauty of being outdoors. Maybe because I am just walking, I notice these, and an hour walk outside is not a chore.

So true Terry, and in MN I do a lot of indoor exercising, but I went out cross country hiking yesterday, 2.05 miles for 1 hr and 15 min. It was snowy, rutty and generally rough for me to walk on and some of the hills were high enough my fitbit gave me credit for climing 5 staircases (yay) and it felt wonderful!!!! Today headed back to the gym to get on the stationary bike with just my ipod to keep me motivated! I've learned to "appreciate" indoor exercising, but LOVE outdoor exercising!!!

I recieved this article in my sparkmail from Spark that i thought was very good about indoor running on a treadmill verses outdoor running. (It can be used for walking or any other exercise, too).

It helped point out to me part of the problem I often have with indoor exercising---how it's kinda boring and even "odd" that one puts in all that work and gets nowhere! (I guess we humans expect that when we walk or run it's supposed to take us somewhere--not stay in the same place! Ha!)

But the article also points out how indoor working out can be good, too.
