Chubby Runner-Vol. 2

Ok, so the day for the mini-marathon is quickly approaching.  Unfortunately, mother nature is not co-operating with my workout schedule. 

I don’t belong to a gym.  I am kicking this old school.  I prefer to walk outside, but recently the temperatures have been frigid and the ground has been snow covered. 

I could walk like this…like an arctic sand person from Star Wars…

But I would likely end up like this…

My hubby, who is infinitely wise (and admittedly wants me to get out of the house and exercise) suggested that I make use of our churches sanctuary and walk some laps there. 

I did.  I walked 1.5 miles worth of laps, all measured by my trusty pedometer. 

I spent my walk bopping away on my IPod to the tunes of ABBA.

I will resist the temptation to hum Dancing Queen this week during the invitation. 

If you would like to try and follow my training schedule you can download a copy of it here.

Its courtesy of my brother, Chip, who is constantly assuring me that yes I can walk 13.2 miles and a doughnut doesn’t have to be in front of me. :)   Hopefully next week will be much more pleasant and I can do some outdoors walking!  Until then!
