Ice, ice baby

Freezing rain, sleet and snow hit Oklahoma Monday and Tuesday, completely hindering my workout schedule. I went home early from work Monday and my little truck slide all around. I wasn't risking the gym. Yesterday was a bit better, and today some of it is melting. I didn't make it to the gym either day this week because I didn't want to drive after dark and I won't be able to go today because 1) it's my off day, and 2) the thing I'm supposed to do Monday got pushed back to tonight on account of the weather.

To attempt to compensate, I did pilates. I live on a second floor apartment, so cardio is somewhat out of the question because my neighbors wouldn't want me clunking around and maybe joining them from above. Monday, I was supposed to bike, but instead did 30 minutes of pilates: belly, butt, legs. Figured I was working the same muscle groups. Tuesday I was supposed to swim and run, but instead I did 25 minutes of full body pilates. I definitely could feel them, but I didn't really feel like I got a great workout in or anything. I'm hoping to be able to swim tomorrow, but running Friday will be challenging. I'll have to figure it out! I might do a little more pilates tonight, but I'll be cramped for time as is, so I'm not sure that will work.

Until next time...
