Oo Winter is almost here…. Back East that would mean snow boots, puffy coats, and warming the car up and leaving the keys in the ignition. Here, it means filling a 16oz thermos with coffee, a 32oz thermos with tea and Stevia, taking my vitamins, dressing in layers, and waiting in the cold to catch the bus.
This morning I “went for a run” with Garvey. IT WAS SO COLD. I wore work out tights, Montrail trail running shoes, a Mammut parka, Smartwool socks, a Mountain Hardwear beanie, and Reebok gloves (I’m like an advertisement for REI). I didn’t start sweating until the end of my workout. Garvey is getting really good staying “heel” when I jog. Because it was so early I didn’t put him on his leash. I figure if someone attacks me we both need to be able to move at our leisure. <– It saddens me that that’s why I think about while jogging in the morning.
I’m going to take my Threelac supplement, daily vitamins, probably making some amazing juice, pack my thermoses (is that a word?) and head out the door. I have back to back meetings all day, teaching class, and then I’m doing a presentation of sorts in the evening. I’m going to try and take care of myself today. It’s going to be a long one. At least “Thanksgiving” break is just around the corner and I’ll be able to rest soon.
