However, this season really cramps my style when it comes to working out outside. I have had far to many morning runs ("far too many" reads as "a total of maybe two") cut short because my fingers have frozen solid and the wind has sand blasted my legs with tiny frozen pieces of dirt through my cotton sweats. Don't get me started on the fact that my toes were numb before I even put my shoes on.
This winter I'm determined to find an exercise plan that will be sustainable through the cold days. My goals are as follows:
- Try out at least three new types of exercise for at least one to two weeks.
- Dedicate at least 30 days to indoor exercise that does not have the words "machine" or "cardio theater" anywhere in the names
- Dedicate at least 30 days to some form, or a few forms, of outdoor (I feel my nose hair freezing already) exercise.
