I love going down to my basement and getting my sweat on BUT... the temp is not right - it's hot in the summer, freezing in the winter, there is NO light, and then I saw spiders, a vole (google that sick thing), a mouse or two, and just about the time I was ready to give the basement one last chance, I noticed the big brights lights at the brand NEW gym next to Elle's dance school. SOLD...
Wednesday, K9Bish and I dropped the girls off at dance and walked in to sell our souls to the muscular people in the community;) Signed ourselves right up, made our appointments with the trainers, and hit the treadmill... It felt GOOD!!!
So I caught the gym bug... BAD... I missed having a place to go and workout/run. I missed being around other people who were there for the SAME reason. I missed the people watching. I missed the salty smell of sweat everywhere, germs flying around like mad. I MISSED THE GYM! So I took advantage this weekend and went EVERY SINGLE DAY. HA....
Last week's run schedule - all on the treadmill:
Tuesday - 3 miles
Wednesday - 4 miles
Friday - 5 miles
Saturday - 5 miles
Sunday - 12 miles
Total = 30 miles
I haven't incorporated any weight training yet - as I am tapering for the next few weeks before the marathon on December 7th. I have my appt on Wednesday morning with a trainer and they are going to "show me the ropes", then after the marathon I will be hitting up weight training again and I am VERY much looking forward to it.
P.S. - I bought new running shoes and they are NOT Brooks - post tomorrow on my shoe shopping experience and why I switched.
How was your weekend? Gym goer? Any good booty moves for me?
