Time is flyin' by...at an alarming rate. Here it is, half the month of January, shhhhum, gone.
I had a hard time motivating myself to go to the gym today, but I
went. Man, I should have gone way earlier than that! It was
not very crowded, but more than usual for me. Last week, I had it
timed pretty good and went during mid-day, when most folks are working
or otherwise occupied. Today I had to wait for a few of the
machines. It wasn't nearly as bad as the few times I tried to use
the university's gym. But it was still more of an interruption in
the flow of my workout than I really wanted.
I am getting it all down pat and increasing some of the reps on the
machines. I've also lengthened the amount of time on the
recumbent or new step, warming up. I was doing it for 10 min, at
a moderate level. But a few times I have gone with 15
minutes. Maybe next week I will bump it up to 20 min.
Tomorrow is a water work-out class. I went last Thursday to it
and met some nice folks. They drive in from places that are about
half an hour away. They say that this gym is the nicest. I
My guy and I went yesterday. He said that the gym was not
intimidating and the staff seem to be friendly, as do the other
members. It's true too. I don't feel like I have to work
out before I go, like I did at the university. There are all
different body types. The folks that seem to be used to working
out, don't get all huffy with us who are just started. There is
no primping and preening.
I like that.
