Snow falling on cedars

Snow falling on (my neighbor's) cedars

Snowbound, icebound, cabin-fever-bound... nothing to see here. Move along, move along. Why not rearrange Henry Tudor's face?

Week 8 of the couch to 5k.
Done! Running is a useful outlet when you're really pissed off at extremely annoying relatives. I'm starting to think that therapists should prescribe it instead of pharmaceutical anodynes.
Plus, 2 miles walking.

Does this mean you and Orlando are having another secret rendezvous again? :)

The Merry said...

Me and Orlando Manuel... and some lubricant. Sigh.

Sometimes I wish I could have a motorized treadmill -- but on the other hand, the opportunities for smutty humor are endless :)

Well, you could hunt around on Craig's List after Christmas. Never know what you might find. :)

The Merry said...

Nah... I'd need to rewire the house so that the old wiring could handle the new electronics :(

BCB said...

The old wiring can't handle the new electronics? Didn't you just inform us a few posts ago that your body is amazingly adaptable? What? Oh. I thought you were speaking euphemistically. Or something.

I don't think it's possible to have cabin fever after a mere two days. Not unless the snow has piled up to a depth so that it blocks all the windows.

You really don't get a lot of snow out there, do you? It doesn't matter how *long* it's been snowing. If you don't have to dig out your tires it doesn't count. Put your boots on and take a walk. There are few things more soothing spiritually, or energetic aerobically than walking in the snow. A whole nuther set of muscles. Your body is amazing, it will adapt.

Soothing? Soothing???!!!
I just spent 45 minutes playing chicken with drivers while I'm trying to cross the icy street and they're trying to mow me down.
If that's your idea of soothing, then I do not think I'm ready to cope with walking in Washington D.C. anytime soon. Even with running shoes on.

You should move to Minneapolis -- they have an amazing skyway system. You can walk all over downtown without ever going outside. Plus it hardly ever snows there. In July.

Well there's your problem, you don't wear running shoes to walk in the snow!

Good therapists do prescribe exercise--it's just that few clients actually follow through and do it. Good for you!

The Merry said...

That's good to know -- I think more doctors should prescribe it as well!
