    Is anyone having a difficult time motivating when it's so cold outside?
    I am not really a gym rat, I love being outdoors, but living here is so hard for me because I can't get up and go when it's so cold.
    I haven't worked out in two weeks, I was doing some Tae Bo tapes before, but I want to feel some fresh air going into my body when I work out, not just stifled apartment air.
    Has anyone had any success with keeping workouts going?
    Would anyone be interested in doing a Monday walk/jog after work? Maybe even before work?
    I know that there is a track off of Chicago and Inner Lake Shore Drive. Or if anyone has any other ideas for a track that is in Chicago and might have better parking, let me know.
    I think it might be helpful to start a group and that will help to get something going that is more consistent.
    Thanks!
    ps. I used to use this trainer and we were doing sprint work for awhile (back at the UCLA track in California, I miss it!!) anyway, that got me in shape pretty quick so I wouldn't mind showing you girls some of the stuff we did. But maybe waiting for that until it gets warmer would be wise so that we don't pull any muscles when it's super cold like this.

      i feel the same way you do. and i would love to get together maybe a monday evening thing or what would actually work better for me is saturday or sunday mornings because my work schedule is really tight and i work late a lot during this time of year. when it gets a little warmer though. also i did some damage to my muscles/joints thanks to a stupid allergic reaction to a prescription, so i have to wait 4-5 weeks to do any real working out anyway also does anybody like to play tennis? i have one friend who i like to play tennis with to just hit the ball around and we are going to start playing toward the end of april if anyone else wants to play too! there are lots of free courts around the city and we can rotate courts to whatever is close by each person to be fair.
