Wild and Wicked Weather

With the two inches of rain that poured down here yesterday, I was glad I had scheduled Wednesday as a ‘gym day’.  I am determined to use my membership this year.

When I got to the gym, I saw the two Precor EFX 645 were occupied! Hey, how dare people be on my machine!

So it was time to actually start a strength training regimen.  I went through some pretty basics, and didn’t lift a lot of weight. I didn’t want to end up with really sore muscles due to not being in shape to strength train.
Then the machines opened up, and I decided to try one of the pre-programmed workouts, something called ‘gluteal workout 1’ for 30 minutes.

Ugh, I was tired at six minutes.

Around 15 minutes, the machine told me to pedal backwards! Well, that was different.
I found out I am not as great ‘in shape’ as I originally thought with climbing steps. I was glad this was only a 30 minute workout!  But it’s a good start to improve on my climbing ability.

  1. The nerve! This is why we run (outdoors). Only occasionally do people dare to occupy our trail of choice. And they often turn out to be cool enough to befriend.
