I will not run in the rain.
I will run in snow, but not in a snowstorm.
I will not run when it's below -10C.
Yes, I love the results of daily vigorous exercise, but I don't think it's necessary to be a Spartan about it. Oh, you "Spartan Race" people, you go have fun with that.
So, the forecast tells me I will be taking part only in indoor activities for the next few weeks, but I have not yet invested in the rowing machine I have coveted for several years now. What's a girl to do? Well, I sometimes use a yoga DVD that leaves me sweaty and out of breath, even while focusing and centring, and of course, there's the curling.
Before you laugh, I, too don't always consider curling to be the most strenuous of exercises. But yesterday, 15 rocks into my practice, I removed my jacket to find the sweater underneath wet from the exertion. Yes, it's anaerobic, but it still counts. 32 thrown rocks plus skipping a game, and I'm pretty sure I have found a non-rain, non-snowing way to avoid running outdoors in the frigid weather. (my team played very well, me, not so much...)
Now, if only I could find a way to get baking classified as exercise, all would be well.
