Might Be Too Late To Snowshoe
It's early April, but this is Iowa.
It may not be too late to snowshoe! I thought this article about the popular winter activity from the Des Moines Register is a friendly reminder about different fitness opportunities winter weather brings along.
Ice skating, snowshoeing and cross country skiing are just a few of the activities that are prime time for winter weather. These exercises work different muscles than we are accustomed to AND they burn LOTS of calories.
Each of these activities is a great endurance builder. So, if you find yourself the beneficiary of a late blast of winter, use the opportunity to try one of these exercises.
