Back on the treadmill

Yup, I'll admit it: I haven't been to the gym in ages. I was starting to get pudgy around the midsection again, so I figured that I was probably losing muscle mass and putting on fat. Not a good tradeoff.

So today, I decided to get back on the wagon, so to speak. I showed up at the YMCA and Daneen gave me my towels, while commenting that she hadn't seen me for a long while. I shrugged and said I was busy. "Isn't everybody," she replied.

Anyway, I went through my exercise routine, noting that I had to scale back a bit on the weights. But I managed to do a pretty good cardiovascular workout without too much trouble. The gym is mostly empty these days: probably a combination of the good summer weather, and the breaking of New Year's resolutions.

Afterwards, I had a wonderfully hot shower, and changed to go to work. Not too shabby.

Oh wait. Right now, my arms are telling me that I should have scaled back further on those weights.

Ow.

I find that the sauna at the end is almost enough to encourage me to make it to the gym. Nothing like baking the pain away :)

Kudos for making it back to the gym, it's hard.

Good for you. Keep it fun, take it easy. It's amazing what regular workouts, even mellow, will do for feeling great.
