Ok, not really.....
But I am happy to say that I have been feeling great lately because of my new found love for the gym. Seriously, Club Fitness may be the best thing that has ever happened to me. Besides, you know, the obvious like marrying my husband, having amazing and loving parents, having a wonderful pup, etc.
Anyway, I joined up almost four weeks ago and starting going about 2 times a week and averaging doing 5 miles between the elliptical and the treadmill. I actually wanted to go more often but throwing in the 4th, my trip to Phoenix, and a birthday really kind of throws my whole schedule off. Last week was fairly normal so I went 4 times and on Friday hit a HUGE milestone. After feeling tired and crabby on Thursday night I dragged my ass to the gym after work and I did 8 miles on the elliptical. I was so happy/proud of myself that I told every single person I could. In fact, now would probably be a good time to apologize to those I spent both Friday and Saturday with, because I kept throwing in the words "8 miles" any chance I could get. I was just so proud of myself!!
Today I left work a tad early and headed back to the gym expecting to do 7-8 miles. I figured it was going to be really hard to do it again since I had spend the majority of the weekend drinking, eating, and being lazy. Plus, it is Monday, everything is harder on Mondays. But 1 hour and 50 minutes after I had gotten to the gym I had done 9 miles!!! I am still totally in shock. That means I averaged just above a 12 minute mile, which is better than I did last week!
So here's the downside. I am dripping wet by the time I am finished. I mean, shirt and hair totally drenched. And the Club Fitness that I go to has yet to get a shower installed. So do any of you knowledgeable blog readers know about some kind of body spray that helps cool you down quick and smell not so terrible? I heard through the grapevine that Bath and Body Works may have something like this, but my search has been unsuccessful so far.
