Went out for an afternoon run. Old man winter left his mark
on the neighborhood. The sidewalks had a light dusting of snow.
Not much. About an inch.
Perfect for a fast run. Many times I dont know
if I will walk or run before I step outside,
but today – I knew run soon as I hit
our front steps.
When you run on snow it feels
like you are running on air. It felt zero
pounding on my joints. This is
the same when running trails.
The pavement was ideal because there was no ice
on them. Warning: if there is ice — run
at your own risk. You never know
when you’ll hit a patch and go flying.
This morning was perfect because
all that was underneath was
the cement. Or as they say in Michigan
Don’t let the weather be an excuse
not to exercise. That’s only if you live up north.
Go out and get that cold FRESH air in
Ps. Throw some deep breathing into your runs
as taught in Triple Your Endurance
and watch your metabolism chew
away the unwanted 2007 fat cells and start
fresh in 08. Incorporate the Morning Glory (also in TYE) exercises
into your run. No. No stopping– as you run.
Thats the great part about these exercises
- you can do them consecutively all in a half mile distance
and every muscle in your legs with feel great from it.
