Winter hit Central Oregon with a vengance last Friday night and it's been coming straight at us ever since. We started with snow and slick roads, then rolled into less snow but very cold weather (even some negatives in there), had a sunny day - but cold, and now are warmer but it's snowing lots today.
All of the light snow we received last weekend and earlier this week was great for running and playing in. My dog Sascha is going absolutely crazy! This is definitely her favorite time of year...she would absolutely love to be running 100 mile weeks right now. Unfortunately for her (and fortunately for me), that's not happening.
If you're having trouble motivating yourself to get in a workout in these conditions, please join us for our weekly workouts. We have four:
Sundays, 8:30 a.m., 5-10 miles, varying paces
Mondays, 6 p.m., Strength Training, $5
Wednesdays, 6 p.m., Headlamp Run, 3-5 miles, varying paces
Wednesdays, 7 p.m., Yoga for Athletes, $5
All of the above workouts start at Fleet Feet.
Also, when you come to any of our workouts, you automatically get signed up for our Winter Warriors program. Winter Warriors is basically a program designed to keep you active in the winter months while providing you with rewards along the way, and even a little bit of competition for the Warrior with the most points.
In addition to the above 4 weekly workouts, we'll occasionally have special events where you can earn more points - and get in a great workout. A couple in the near future are:
Dec. 31, Bend's First 1000 Lights Community Walk
Jan. 3, BadAss
So far, we've had over 50 people sign up to be a warrior. Please come join the fun!
