Oh boy, what a super chilly start this morning. It was certainly a very brisk walk around the block before doing my core strengthening exercises. There’s nothing like -2.5 degrees celsius, which felt like -4.9 according to the Bureau of Meteorology, and which I can attest to, to get the legs going and the arms pumping!
I also decided to leave my iPod home and go naked, i.e. without music, for my walk. And I enjoyed the quiet and stillness of the early morning. Of course anyone with any sense was at home, in their beds, snuggled under blankets and doonas! But the peace and quiet was appreciated and the time went really quickly. Before I knew it, I was back home again, inside the warmth of my house.
Sometimes it’s nice to go without music and other technology but just appreciate being outdoors, in the fresh air, participating in healthy activities. Even at 5.45am!
