Last weekend I actually wore my Yak Trax. When I first got going I thought maybe I had been overly cautious but it was slippery and they kept me from falling. I am a little more nervous now that a broken bone and I have become much too close. I must say my wrist really hasn't healed quite the way I hoped. Then yesterday I fell in the slippery snow when we were making our Christmas deliveries and what do I use to catch myself but my wrist. I was kind of grumpy which seems to be what I do when I fall and hurt myself. I am embarrassed (stupid) and just want to remove myself from the situation.
Back to running. Well exercising. At least twice a week I am hopping on my bike trainer and although I no longer encounter beautiful views as I MOVE ALONG it isn't terrible outside the window if it is daylight. I kind of like riding on it in the early morning before work. I also like the ease of answering the phone, using my own bathroom, having anything I need close by. These are all things I am not used to as I always leave to work out.
These pictures are all before our official run. Jaxon is
out trying out the snow and his new LED light!
Yes this is the best holiday dog shot ever. He
was part of a door decorating contest.
As he does them. Last night we had 3 yellow cats sleeping with us and there was hardly room to turn over. I think they were thrilled when Jaxon went for a run with us. Jaxon was also thrilled unlike the time he refused to go with me. Jameson let him be off leash and he couldn't have been happier! At least I think that is what the flying through the snow with the ears flying high means.
I know I LOVE running in the snow and it helps me get back some of the joy of running I seem to have misplaced.
Cutest dog ever!
I was behind the whole way!
I kept going and came up along the river a different way.
Then I played some with Jax when I got home.
Which tired him out at least for a little while.
So this was the Jaxon edition of our Christmas I guess! I'll post some of my fun gifts later. I got some great bike things whereas last year was the swim year. I hope everyone had a wonderful day!
