A Nice Surprise for Turkey Day

I just finished doing the first of many stair workouts for the cold months. I haven't done one of those since last winter. It's a standard shut-in-bad-weather workout for me. I usually get so incredibly sick of it by the time that spring comes that I refuse to do it until forced to. Well, today I just did NOT want to do that bike again. Plus I really need to cross train anyway. I failed to get up early enough to go running before Bruce went off to Turkey Bowl, like I had planned. So, to make sure that I got my workout in today, I did the stairs. Every winter when I do the stair workout for the first time, I am surprised by how hard it is. It's the same thing with spring and running pushing a buggy. I was expecting this to be a really hard day, especially since I haven't been doing much running. However, that bike must be doing something for me because it really wasn't that bad. Don't get me wrong, it was a good workout, but I didn't feel like dieing. I started out with the intention to quit after 30 minutes, but I felt okay, so I did 40. Go me!

Yay! Maybe you strengthened your thighs with the bike?
