A Winter Run - The Test
It's winter and the chances of me running outdoors is almost negative one. However, there was a beautiful bright sunny day where the temperature was in the 40's, so we decided to hit the track. Naturally, as soon as we arrived, the wind decided that it was time to pick up speed and challenge us. It was so windy, it felt like a surprise test to see how serious we were about our run.
We did our warm up, walked for a couple laps and then it was on........
At times the wind was so strong we could hardly breathe, some people turned in the opposite direction and jogged backwards to avoid the pressure.
Not only did we get our run on but there was the brief sideline work out which included burpees and such. Yes, the weather did a bait and switch on us but we worked through it and I can say with full confidence that I am so glad we did.
Have you ever had a time when you just did not feel up to working out, going to the gym or taking that walk? Have you reluctantly managed to get that work out in and realized how great you felt about it in the end? Well, it's still early enough in the year to follow through on your fitness plans. Take the time to actively work on your fitness goals. How about it?
