So I finally went to the gym today for the first time in YEARS. My body decided that it wasnt happy with all the running I am doing and that I needed to help it out by building some accessory muscles! So here I go! It was kinda like the first day of school. I was excited but didnt want to go...all at the same time.
I started out with a warm up on the elliptical...except they dont call it an elliptical...and I dont remember what the lady did say it was called. I obviously need to learn how to take pictures while bobbing up and down on the thing! It was nice. I got to check in on facebook while on it, haha.
I finished it up with 10mins on the treadmill and 10mins on the elliptical. I liked the elliptical but the treadmill just made me depressed. It made me want to go outside and run. Sigh...tomorrow.
I really hope I like this gym. It is between by home and work which makes it perfect to stop at before or after. And even better would be that I could stop in the morning on my run commute home. That would be ideal for sure! I could stop in and do what I need to do and get the heck out.
EATS: Breakfast was Shredded Wheat cereal and a Banana. Yes, I eat my shredded wheat plain. No milk. I do have a huge glass of water on the side though!
