Friday workout: some core? Day off from running after 2 days on (total 4.5 miles, I know, hold the phone people :).
Saturday workout: Nordic skiing twice! I went out very early in the morning because 1. we got snow and 2. it was a toasty 20 degrees and supposed to get colder all day/week (currently -9). A solo ski was just what I needed.
Then Frank came home from work and got very jealous of my skiing and asked if I wanted to go again. Um, do I have a new headlamp to try out?? The answer to that would be yes.
I am now very tight in the hip flexors and a little sore, but it was well worth it. Skiing is my absolute favorite thing about living in Duluth. PS, If I didn't talk about the weather/snow/outdoor activities in every. single. post, I just wouldn't be a good Minnesotan/Michigander (I don't know why people from Michigan throw a "d" in there and want to be called something that ends in gander instead of the standard ian that other states do?).
Lucy had a little adventure at the park wherein she ran around in the new snow like this for a little while:
...then chased a guy on a bike (that ended much better than it could have and he said she was the cutest dog he had ever seen. This does not encourage me to obey leash policies). When it was time to walk home, she fell over and then decided to fake limp the rest of the way so everyone would look at me like the worst dog owner in the world.
Now I am mentally preparing for going back to school/interning this week. Mentally preparing = trying to figure out how I can skip February through April. I would be physically preparing, but our washer has decided to not work this week. Good thing we have febreeze.
What are people from your state/province/city/area called?
What is your favorite outdoor activity to do where you live?
