So remember on Monday when I said that I was going to attempt to follow the Turbofire workout schedule and continue it through? Week 1 results so far? Big. Fat. Fail. I did ONE TurboFire workout this week. Am I ashamed or embarrased? Not at all. I’ve been running, going to Bar Method & doing Zumba in my living room for all the neighbors to see. And I’ve been loving every minute of it. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy beach body workouts. TurboFire is a lot of fun and Chalene Johnson has great energy. I turn to Shaun T when I need an ass-kicking cardio session. And Tony Horton’s Ab Ripper is the icing to my 3 mile run. But I’ve come to the conclusion that I have exercise ADD. I cannot do the same type of workout day after day. Unless I’m training for a race, that’s the only exception. Last night I was supposed to do a 30 minute TurboFire workout, but the weather in Chicago was much too perfect to stay in doors so I took my butt to the streets of Michigan Avenue and ran. It felt amazing! I forget how much I love running sometimes. It’s nice to be reminded 🙂
After reading about the Frozen Tundra 100 challenge on Nina’s blog and realizing how much I miss running outside, I decided to give this challenge a go. The gist of the challenge to is to run 100 miles outside between December 1st & January 31st. 3 miles down, 97 more to go. Doesn’t sound too horrible. But let me remind you what Chicago winters look like:
I get cold just looking at that picture. I wonder if they sell running boots somewhere? The best part of running outside in the cold? The hot shower afterwards! Enjoy your weekend & GO BADGERS!
