It is officially winter out there! 4 degrees, windy and snowy. As of Thursday night though I have heated seats to keep my bum warm if I have to drive around in it. After 12 years of driving the same car, my husband and I traded in my '99 Oldsmobile Alero for a 2008 Subaru Outback.
I am personally excited about the all wheel drive and heated seats. Other things that will be an ungrade from from my old car include
- having a radio I can see what station I am on
- having a radio that doesn't randomly change stations while I am rocking out to a favorite song
- all windows go up and down
- I can plug in my cell phone to charge
- I have a dome light
- completely new windshield, no cracks, pitting, chips or anything
- I can plug my iPod into it
- I key fob unlocker thingy
- rear window windshield wiper
and a little funny. Here is the disclaimer I had to initial for my half marathon in March
This is a winter trail run with sticks and stones, gravel trails and uneven surfaces, probably ice and snow. You will slip and slide, get muddy and maybe fall down. But then you know that because you've been training some and it would be silly, and not a good idea on your part, to attempt a winter run without adequate training, clothing and preparation. So you might get hurt, but you've decided that you want to run this winter run anyway because it's better than sitting on the couch, which is also dangerous over time. Have a good time, and be careful. Also, if you are Roman, be sure to watch for conspiring senators.
Not sure yet if I will get out to run today or not. Conditions aren't great out there right now, so it might be an elliptical cross training kind of day. Plus I have a weighted ball and TRX system that came in the mail yesterday from Sportline that I am excited to try out.
How is the weather where you are?
