1. I woke up yesterday morning to a snowy world. It was only 3 inches or so but it oddly made me happy. It was a heavy wet April snow and I knew it would be gone soon anyway. I live up at a higher elevation than where I work so it is fun to drive a snow covered car into town where there is no snow and everyone wondering where you came from.
It's also been very cloudy and rainy. It rather makes me happy. I know it turns the world green and makes the grass grow. It makes the hay grow that feeds our cows and makes the crops grow that feed us.
It doesn't always make running fun out here as it turns my dirt and gravel roads to a muddy sloshy slippery mess!
2. So when I got home from work a little early yesterday and saw how muddy the roads were I decided a cross training day was in order for sure!
I did 10 minutes of rowing and then a 15 minute HIIT workout. To cool down I went and danced in the rain. It felt really good.
The one workout I did was half dynamic cardio HIIT type workout and half power yoga. I really liked it and would love more like that, but there was only one. Well two, but the other was a beginner one and I don't want beginner. My goal is to try at least a couple more before my free month is up, but I was having a hard time getting excited about any of them. I did finally explore the workouts enough that I think I found a bunch I want to try.
