It's Cold, People!

Last night I did some light Crossfit exercises, mostly upper body stuff, push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, kettlebell swings, clean and some squats. I also did a couple 4 minute workouts on the exercise bike. My shed where the exercise equipment is located is not heated, so I am having a hard time getting started. I tried to interest my running buddy in some crosstraining, but she (wisely?) did not answer me when I enquired about it (she knows my shed is not heated ;-)

When I woke up this morning at 7:00 a.m. it was a cold -14°C (7°F) outside, arctic conditions for our typically warm region of Germany. Luckily my car started and I was able to get some shopping done. I hope it warms up some before my long run this afternoon, I have 25 km (15.5 mi.) on the training plan. I am running with Uli and Birgit, so we can keep each other motivated :-)

As I lay in bed trying to sleep last night I was thinking about lots of things. I have had an incredible amount of nervous energy lately, mostly due to the long two week holiday vacation, i.e. too much time on my hands. I stayed busy physically, but mentally I was couch potato status. This unfortunately resulted in wanting to "do something" every chance I could get, as opposed to relaxing and trying to regenerate. I think I wore out at least a couple friends nerves by trying to motivate them to do something, this is what I was referring to in my post yesterday. I need to learn to channel my energy in a positive direction, there are surely enough people around that could use a helping hand, right!

Have a great weekend!

I would need a heated shed in order to get out there and workout.
