Snowshoes, sun and Arnold

This blog is turning into Arnold fan blog. Or I’m turning into Arnold’s Golden Six -fan girl! Which isn’t a bad thing. That program is something else. It’s short enough which means it does not get boring. And one doesn’t have to do just legs. Or arms. Let’s see if I still like G6 after this month. But at the moment, I’m a fan. Before the gym I did something else though.

We had a project kickoff day at work. First it was 3 hours in a crowded auditorium, but then it was 3 hours of sun and nice weather outside. We had to choose one activity to do. The choices were kettle bell class, broom ball (a broom and a ball and game is on), soccer (in deep snow), ice fishing and then the one I picked: snowshoe walking. It was fun and hard. But easy! And like usual, walking on water 🙂

After the outdoor activities, most of my co-workers went to eat and have a sauna. I went to the gym. It’s not that I didn’t want to stay and socialize with the others, it was more that I have decided to do 3 G6s/week and next time I’m gonna go is on Sunday. Now I’ll get two days between the gym visits.
