Baby, It’s Cold Outside
It is currently 10 degrees outside (that’s Fahrenheit… which is -12 Celcius). Brrrr! I love the brisk, cold winter weather but I can’t say I really love exercising in this cold!
It has been must too cold for me to think about running outside. I don’t have the cold-weather running gear (nor the inclination, to be honest!) to run in such chilly temperatures. I guess it’s time to hop back on the treadmill more regularly!
I actually haven’t done a lot of running since my race on Thanksgiving (but I have been doing yoga). I ran one day the week after the race but had hip pain that day and the following day and haven’t gotten on the treadmill since. (And to be honest, I didn’t get in ANY exercise at all last week… Ooops? At least I did a lot of walking in NYC on Sunday and Monday?) But I have been getting back into my morning exercise routine this week.
Yesterday and this morning I got up and got in some yoga practice. Ahhhh. So relaxing and yet stimulating. I am totally loving on the yoga again. Pretty hard. It’s a great winter morning workout for me. It gets me out of bed and gets me moving and warm. It works and stretches my muscles and I feel great afterward. I don’t need a lot of equipment. I just need myself, some comfortable clothes, my yoga mat, a video and I’m ready to go.
In addition to my morning exercise, I also walk to and from work every day (Yes, even in the cold. A walk I can stand. :) ), so I get in a 2 mile walk every week day.
