My last 2 days of running have been cold!! I really didn't think I would last too long outside but I knew I would run further outside then on the dreadmill!! I like running in the cooler weather but wasn't for sure if I could run in 19 degrees (feels like 9!!).
A friend said to me, "You don't run in this cold of weather do you?"
I replied, "Oh no!! It's too cold!"
When I left I asked myself why not? A couple of hours later I bundled up and went for a run. I really enjoyed the run and it felt good being out there. I ran 4.25 miles, I was trying to get 4 miles but I ran out a little further then I was suppose too. Plus it was too cold to walk back. So I got an extra .25 mile in. (Bonus!)
So, the next day I did it again!!
The next day it was a little warmer and the sun was shining bright. I did the same route as the day before and a little faster. It felt so good to be out there!
Another new adventure I have been trying is weight lifting! I forgot how much I missed it. It feels so good to get in the gym. Here are a few pics of my full body workout.
These are pics from the third time doing this workout and I was still working on my base weights. Since then I have added a lot more weight to each exercise. I have been changing it up every few times.
Do you run out in the cold or do you choose the dreadmill?
Do you like weight lifting?
