I have so many excuses not to get outside and run. It's sad really. Yesterday and today, I blamed it on the weather. Any kind of moisture falling from the sky and I'm pretty sure it's not a good idea to run. Fair weather runner, that's me. Last week, I blamed it on the weather also. There wasn't any rain, but it was too cold. And before that...I forget, but I'm sure I had reason that made sense at the time. Yeah, I know, LAME. Sigh.
Tomorrow morning, I *will* head to the gym for strength training because it's never too cold outside to do weight work indoors. And strength training is the one thing that I have been consistent about in the past month.
So, you may wonder what the heck I have been doing since I've obviously been doing a whole lotta' nuttin' in the exercise department.
Quite honestly, I've been preoccupied with another goal. By Mid-March I hope to be able to commute on something way more environmentally friendly than my SUV. Specifically, I'm working toward my class W motorcycle endorsement so that I can start scootin' to work on something like this:
I might just start a second blog so as not to clutter this one with my new adventures in pursuit of becoming a "Scootin' Commuter". Or don't you mind coming along for that ride as well? Let me know what you think.
In any event, I think that my exercise/race goals for 2008 will become more clear once I'm no longer preoccupied with making this other thing happen.
*This photo is one of the scooters that I'm seriously considering. But not necessarily the one that I will end up with; I haven't made a final decision yet.
