Transition to Winter Activities

It has been a busy few weeks.  So busy that I have totally gotten out of my exercise habit, uggh, why do I do this to myself?

 

As it has gotten darker and colder, my outdoor running has pretty much stopped, and so it is also a time of transition to the gym and yoga.  I did manage to get myself to yoga yesterday for the first time in over a month!  I was beginning to feel all sorts of tightness in my body and realized that it was time to get back to class.

I am making a commitment here and now to get to yoga at least twice a week (preferably more, but if I go 8 times a month, I will be getting my money’s worth out of my membership).  I also will get to the gym at least twice a week to keep up (and hopefully build) my muscle strength.  As I plan to do some skiing this winter I had better get into shape for the season — squats, squats and more squats!

 

I feel so good when I do these things, why do I let them lapse?

 

 

 

 

I am not completely done running however as I have signed up for a Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving morning.  I will be visiting family and my son, daughter-in-law and possibly my daughter will be running the race too.  Closer to home, my running club (Coastal Athletic Association) has all sorts of fun things planned — monthly pub runs, a canned food run, a jingle bell run, even an evening run around Nubble Light to see the holiday lights!  I hope to join in some of these events and will share my experiences with you!
