Brr! It’s cold outside!
I woke up this morning and I was FREEZING. I haven’t turned on my heat yet, so that might have something to do with it…
I turned on the oven last night to make dinner and that really helped. I have a rule that I’m not allowed to turn on the heat until December. Just a few more days!
I had to get my weekly dose of red meat. I am loving the grass fed beef from Genesis Beef. If you live in the Dallas area, I highly recommend that you check it out!
It was definitely a gym kind of morning. I have no problems admitting that I’m a total wimp this time of year. During the winter months, I run inside when it’s below 40* (my magic weather number). Hey, I grew up in Texas. I’m allowed to be a cold weather wimp.
The key to working out indoors and not going completely insane is to challenge yourself and constantly changed the speed/incline. Trust me, it will keep you from falling asleep.
This is what I did this morning:
(I kept the incline at 1.0)
You can obviously change the pace around to suit your abilities, but for me, constantly having to think about what interval is next keeps my mind engaged.
I will do any workout on a treadmill but a long run. That’s just pure torture. Multiple hours running at a constant pace? No thanks. I’ll get a little cold for that one.
Are you a wimp like me? Or do you brave the cold?
