Wednesday run: 10 easy miles, 1 % incline, 6.9 mph
Usually when I run on the TM, I require an intense TV show to keep me distracted. Last night I just felt like zoning out with music, which I listened to the entire time.
The run was quite pleasant accept for the fact that I kept hitting my hand on the TM bar in front of me. The particular TM that I run on has a bar in the front that has a fan. The fan is a nice feature, especially in our apartment building’s stuffy basement, but this thing ALWAYS gets in my way. Last night was particularly bad, perhaps because I was running so slow and wanting to overtake the TM, but I kept punching that darn thing every half mile or so.
Yesterday I had to make a really sad decision: I quit my gym membership. Being the obsessive running/working out nut that I am, I have had gym membership since grade school–when I was 11 I started working with a personal trainer to work on strength training for skating.
I just love the gym atmosphere…the variety of cardio and weight equipment, the opportunity to take classes, and the extra motivation to work hard (cause you made the effort to go and are surrounded by other people).
However, I will have a lot of expenses coming up that I need to save up for, so I realized the monthly gym membership fee had to go. It was a luxury I did not need, especially since I have a workout room with basic stuff in my apartment complex that I can use for free. Soooooooo, I sadly sent off this email : (
Yes, I was very traumatized by this whole experience. I am confident, though, that I will overcome this terrible loss and move on….eventually. #firstworldproblems
Alright, that’s it. Here are a few random pics to end this post with:
