We are flying high over the United States on our way to Florida where we will spend one and half days before departing on our cruise. The plan for the cruise is to work out everyday. Treadmill, track, or running on the beach... Keep the running alive even while being on vacation.
My running the past month has been probably once or twice a week on average. With the days getting darker earlier and the cold starting to set in has led me back to running on our treadmill. I joined the gym at work, but have only been there once... That was only to check it out and see if I would like it. I need to get a new lock and figure out a routine for using the work gym. In the meantime, I have been running regularly on the old treadmill in the basement.
I really do not mind running on the treadmill. However, since I got my Garmin watch and like tracking miles and where I run, I miss not being outside to run. A few times when it has been nice, I have run outside. It is so easy to get cold running outside even when the temperatures have not been bad at all. Not having the right running clothes for winter has a lot to do about that problem.
The above three paragraphs were written while on our way to our cruise... I never got back into finish up this draft blog posting and just came across it today. So much for keeping the blogging going as I mentioned in my last post. Instead of clearing this post, I decided I would go ahead and post it.
I did keep the exercise going during our vacation back in November. I ran a couple times during our time in Florida and then while on the cruise ship. Even though I ran, I gained a lot of weight. With the vacation and holidays which includes a lot of eating, the battle of getting to my target weight is not working too well.
The running continued into December, but so did the eating. I am basically back up to where I was a year ago when I started all of my exercise. It still amazes me that when I take off a week or two from running that the next time I run I feel horrible. It should be a lesson to myself not to take off because it is just like starting out new when I start running after a week or two off.
Until next time... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
