Winter training

The weeks have become months and training became rather erratic! Fall got hectic with other things and training was pushed to the back burner. Then there is the weather to consider. In fall, it became hit or miss if it would be suitable to run or bike outside.

Now that it is winter in Manitoba, there is no debate about outdoor training, and biking has turned to swimming. And training has been reduced to once a week.

I go to a gym with a pool and a track. My daughters and I run 3-5 Km and then swim laps for 300 – 500 m. We have been fairly faithful for the last 3 months at getting out once a week. Sometimes I will only run, not swim, but I do need to work on my endurance in the water.

This week the gym was just too much work to get to, so I resorted to running on the treadmill in my parent’s basement. Not a favorite place to run, and I couldn’t push myself to do more than 2 Km, but the tea and visit after was very pleasant!
