Hannah and I have finished out the Bonny Sosa series and are starting into our first winter of training. Without weekly races to look forward to we are having to find new motivations. We will be running a combination of outside and inside, so that we are still getting some hill training done. Our indoor training is at our local ice rink. I was a little worried that Hannah was going to get bored running around the rink, especially since it is only an 1/8th of a mile oval. Hannah and I have run three times at the rink so far for 3 miles each time. Hannah actually likes running at the rink because there's usually something to watch while we are running :) Thursday was hockey practice and today was speed skating practice. We also started doing a few sets of stairs to help with the flatness of the track.
In a couple weeks we are going to start cross-country skiing with the local junior nordic club. This will serve as part of our fitness training for the winter. I haven't cross-country skied since I was a kid so I am looking forward to taking the beginning classes with Hannah to learn the basics. Should be lots of fun!
On a side note Hannah and I are in the Life section of ADN today in our ladybug costumes at the last Bonny Sosa Race :)
