Playing Many Parts



Day Two – Ice Skating??

Well, I didn’t “technically” go ice skating yesterday as my movement of choice, but I did skate across the ice for what ended up being an interval workout.  Let me explain. Yesterday in my neck of the woods we had an icy snowy mix of weather. It went from super cold, to only moderately cold, and back to freezing again. So, my entire neighborhood was covered in ice by the time I got home from work yesterday. I needed to exercise (move) still and both dogs were looking at me just daring me to not take them out again.

I was concerned about the ice, but since my daughter bought me these amazing beauties bootsamazonpicfor Christmas, and they have GREAT traction. . .I figured I might as well walk the dogs for my movement.  So I went out with the intention of walking the dogs, but what actually happened is that I did some odd combination of skating and jogging and walking for 1.5 miles and accidentally got a pretty decent HIIT workout.  The skating and sliding and jogging was for a few 1 minute intervals and the walking slowly through the grass in some spots was also done in several 1 minute intervals.  Overall. . .I felt like I had done a pretty serious workout.  The dogs got a walk, my boots got broke in, and I got in a challenging workout!  Wins all the way around!
