As 2019 closes I find myself going on semi-regular outdoor walks again. The weather this December has been all over the board, some early snow, some normal cold, and now rain this weekend. Before I drove up north for Christmas I got a quick walk in, once I got back from Christmas I took another walk. I like the fresh air, and the bit of sunshine.
A friend of mine just signed up for a triathlon that I’ve competed in before. Another friend has been discussing 2020 workout goals, and there’s a chance I’ll be signing up for the rollerblade half marathon in Duluth. Which means I will find myself outside more often, still working out at Orange Theory, because I like the structure of their workouts, but as well planned as they are, I need some of that solo workout time to test my own endurance and determination.
I don’t know that I’ll ever get quite to where I was back in the coaching dance, teaching yoga, and triathlon training on the side days. But for now I can be happy with walking a few loops in the winter sun and being thankful for what I have and where I am. I couldn’t have imagined my 2020 life, and from I’ve seen in the last 6 months of 2019, life will always give me a few surprises.
What is your perfect Winter weather?
