Everything I read these days is about spring - spring cleaning, spring break, spring activities - and I'm all for it, except that it's still way too cold to do any spring activities where I live. Hey, I haven't complained about the weather in awhile, so I need my fix.
It appears time for us to get ready for spring and when it comes to changes in your exercise program, there are things you can do to prepare yourself. Going from indoor workouts to outdoor exercise can be a big adjustment for your body.
With that said, I was thinking about my own workouts and what I do, if anything, to get ready for spring. I normally don't make many changes to my workouts, but this year, I suddenly decided to plan ahead - highly unusual for me. One change I made was adding more yoga and core work to my routine to get my back strong and flexible for working in the yard. I know I'll be running outside, so I've been working the incline on my treadmill so my body doesn't go into shock when I encounter a real live hill.
What about you? I'm curious about whether you change your workouts to get ready for a new season. Are you getting your body strong for golf, gardening, tennis or other warm-weather activities? Or do you just keep doing what you're doing and let the chips fall where they may? Leave a comment and tell us all about the fun things you'll be doing this spring and what you're doing to get ready for them.
