(pre) winter fitness

I an earlier post about my fitness I wrote about my personal fitness and that I was doing regular exercises. I also wondered if I could keep this exercise schedule up in the winter. The winter in The Netherlands is usually dark, cold and depressing. That kind of weather will greatly influence my motivation to do my exercises and keep fit. We had a lousy summer this year with some good days (even three heatwaves), but mostly the temperatures were way below the long year average.

My Condition

In English the title of this article basically means that I'm going to write about any illness I'm suffering from. Some Dutch readers could possibly mistake this title for 'mijn conditie' which roughly translate into English as 'my current state of fitness'. Whether or not I'm capable of running to end of the street without collapsing into a sad puddle of human flesh gasping for air. But no, I'm going to write about my condition, hay fever.

My Fitness

As an office dwelling gnome I don't get much exercise when I'm at work. And that's a large part of my day, so I need to compensate by working on my physique outside office hours. In the past that has been proven to be quite difficult, because often I come home feeling exhausted. Even though I get no physical movement at work, working behind a computer screen (actually I have 3) is energy draining the heck out of me.
