This week’s theme is “Fitness Snapshots”.
As you know, my “thing” is running, and I’m a treadmill junkie. So here is, as a friend put it, “where the magic happens”:
Console view – I went for the longer, wider deck and the simplest console when I bought it some years ago (no map, no TV):
The incredibly important shoes….currently Brooks Adrenaline GTS13, with custom orthotics:
My cross-training is bike, pool run/swim or (occasionally) elliptical at work:
Here’s where most of the core work, yoga, trigger point, AIF stretching and rolling happens – in the sunny sitting room off the kitchen:
Occasionally, I do go outside for a run that’s not a race (goal is to do so on Sundays, but I am not hitting that target lately). When I do, I enjoy seeing the gardens, trees and houses in the neighborhoods where I run. Here’s an example of a lovely tree near the house.
When I do run outside, I wear my Garmin – here’s my new one, which I’m loving!
On Saturday afternoons, after my long run, I retire to the porch with my running reading and some Arctic Zero (usually coffee flavor), and look at my Boston-themed flowers. I had pansies that finally couldn’t take the heat, just replaced them with some mums (tag said) or daisies (what they look like). I like gazing at them while thinking about training, visualizing the race, or just listening to the birds.
What snapshots would you share about your fitness routines or habits?
