Every winter I think: this is the time I will finally lose those last 5 pounds, tone up, and really get in shape for running half marathons later in the year.
But . . . it’s winter. Winter makes me want to curl up in a ball and hibernate until May. Those bears are onto something!

It was cold; it was windy; it rained, it snowed, it sleeted. It got warmer. 2 runs on the treadmill (and I discovered the incline isn’t working when I wanted to try some hill work), one slow run outside, and a faster one at the winter series.
Not enough yoga, not a lot of cross training except for strength training. My loose plan right now is to alternate weeks: one week run and strength train three times, followed by one week run 4 times, strength train twice. Try to keep a mostly daily yoga practice. And try to get in short bursts of cross training (other than strength training and yoga).
All depends on what life has in store for me, but fail to plan, you plan to fail, right?
Sushi. Again. This time my husband was too tired to go out to dinner. I swear since he discovered mealeo we might never leave the house again. I’m kind of okay with that in the winter.
We rented “The Martian” saturday and watched it with a big bowl of buttered popcorn. Then chased that with “Apollo 13” saturday night. Then watched “The Martian” again Sunday night since the rental is available for 48 hours. Obviously, we liked it; a bit too long, definitely science fiction, but entertaining.
In case you missed it, I added a button for the furkids to the menu and posted my longer tribute to Chester. I’ve always planned to share more about the furkids here. The primary focus of this blog is healthy living and running, but as I wrote on my facebook page, I want to share all my passions with you. And I know so many runners are passionate about their furkids, too.
And that’s a wrap!
What are your passions other than running/fitness?
