1. My co workers warned me yesterday that I was setting myself up to be mauled when I wrote that it was National Go Hug a Runner Day on the schedule at work. I did get a lot of great hugs. Love my co workers.
2. Speaking of my co workers, sounds like more and more of them are coming around to my way of thinking. I got a friend hooked on Zuzka Lights first set of workout DVDs Power Cardio, now she is talking about running her first 5k next summer. um... YAY!
Sounds like another girl I work with is thinking about ordering Zuzka's DVDs and going with the Power Strength Series then we can trade around. and yet another girl is hooked on doing her ZWOWs from Zuzkalight.com. While you have to pay to get the newest workouts the first 70 or so are free. and unlike Bodyrock.TV's mile long list of equipment, Zuzka keeps it simple.
You would think they pay me for this, but no, I just love Zuzka and her workouts. I have been a happy follower of hers for over three years now and while I make up my own workouts a lot, I still look forward to new ones from her and go back and do old favorites. I think they really helped my running and I am happy to see more and more co workers falling in love with her workouts too.
3. Tuesday was a lovely 54 degrees. Today when I rolled out of bed it was 1 degree F. One. BRRR
I like cold weather running, but that might be pushing it. Unless the sun comes out this morning and then it is all about the layers.. and no wind chill. I read someone's blog yesterday where they didn't like to run outside below 40 degrees. I guess if I had a treadmill I could be pickier, but I really like running on a 20 degree sunny day.
Don't get me wrong I like running on a 45 degree sunny day better, but I think part of the joy of running is getting out and running all four seasons cold, wet, warm, windy, and even hot. Although I will admit being a bigger heat wimp than I am a cold wimp. I don't like to run if it is hotter than 75 out. I will, but I don't like it. Hotter than 85 and I may as well just melt.
Are you a bigger heat wimp or cold wimp when it comes to running outside? I am a heat wimp, give me a cold run any day!
