Coming from the desert, the only seasons I remember were hot and cold. That's why I am so glad to be here in Korea because we get all four! And I'm going to take advantage of this amazing weather by spending it outside. One of the best outdoor places in Korea to get your exercise and get your culture on is at Seoul Olympic Park.

With winter in full swing, it’s easy to get into a routine that lacks any activity other than going to work. Temperatures in South Korea drop to single digits and even below zero. So, unless you’re one of those individuals that loves winter, it’s best to have a plan for staying active. Personally, maintaining a healthy weight is what will keep me pushing to stay active this winter. As a vegetarian it’s incredibly easy to load up on carbs, so, as winter progresses, I hope to make progress in getting and staying active. Here are some available options for keeping fit while teaching English in Korea for a year.
Out for a walk/jog/run with Choco:
Choco is my three year old, toy poodle that I got back in October of 2012. Having a dog means daily walks, even when it’s cold. It’s recommended that I take her out twice daily for about 30 minutes at a time. When I abide by this, I notice that she’s much calmer in the house. On days when I’m too lazy or it’s too cold for even me, she seems to be overly energetic. So, to avoid these behaviors, I’ll be getting in some daily exercise and making Choco gets hers too.
