I work out

RunKeeper tells me its been since December 18 that I walked a significant distance (2 or more miles). Looser. My blog tells me I just DON'T FEEL LIKE IT. Regardless, I decided to get out there today (27* ) and walk the dog. Let me re-phrase that. I have decided if I actually get off work at 1:00 I WILL walk the dog. The end. Why the hell not? Okay, confession, I didn't walk her last week. But I had shit to do! We are leaving town Friday and I needed to get some stuff done in preparation for our trip, a late twentieth anniversary cruise. Yes, Imma gonna leave this 27* weather for 85* weather. Go ahead, be jealous!!

It was kind of weird to walk the hills that are normally all dirt and sand and they were all snow and ice. Needless to say, we didn't get as far as usual!

I was thinking on my walk: I'm in much different shape today than I was in November. Walking keeps my thighs a little slimmer and my cardio up, which I TOTALLY noticed on the ice last Friday morning. What I would loosely describe as "workouts" lately have been yoga and some hockey -- not as much as I would like, but some. Hopefully, once we are back from vacation and I am used to my new work schedule, I can resume hockey twice a week, yoga and walks a couple times a week. Hell, I better get back to hockey a couple times a week, I am signed up for three tournaments in February & March!

Anyway, it was a nice walk, very quiet, no birds for the dog to chase and a tad bit slickery. Next time I take those gripper things for my boots!

I may have ended up with a pretty picture for next years' calendar :)

Oh, and what does it mean when a persons name comes up at work, you see her at yoga, then hockey, then she gets in a car crash all within the same week? It's kind of freaking me out in a "Maybe I cursed her" kind of way. But not really, it was a non-injury crash, so just weird coincidence?

Sounds like you'll be getting some work outs on your cruise with all that kayaking and snorkeling!
