Anyway, Monday is my cross-training and only non-running day of the week. Since I don't have my gym membership yet, I haven't been doing a whole lot and basically have been taking Monday's off. However, this week I'm housesitting for my aunt and uncle who have a dog and a pool! So tonight when I got home from work, I took the dog for a leisurely 45 minute walk and snapped a shot of this:
It's slightly hard to see (okay, almost impossible) but there is a deer on the tracks.
After our little walk, the dog and I went swimming. Rather, I ran laps in the shallow end of the pool while she would jump in after a frisbee. This was the first time I have ever done any pool running and it hurt my shins a lot. I don't have shin splints or anything and it was more in the muscle on the outside of my shin than on the bone. A good workout, nonetheless.
Question: What's your favorite form of cross-training?
