Another First

We joined a local 24-hour fitness center last night. It's getting too hot for Bonnie to run in the evenings and we felt that we needed more variety than just our treadmill at home plus the location that we joined is used by several of our running club members when we get rained out in our early morning runs so it is a good thing all the way around. They have dreadmills, ellipticals, bikes, weight machines, free weights, yoga/pilates/aerobics classes, spin classes, and they have a lap pool.

So for starters I did the following:

Elliptical: 6 min - .52 miles
Recumbent Bike: 10 minutes - 2.07 miles

Not great but it is a start.

Lia the lap pool might be cool to get into out of the hot weather...but me and swimming, well I think I would rather sweat...well almost.

Great job, Randy!!

My dad just bought an elliptical a few months ago, and he said the first few workouts were killers! And he's been running for more than 20 years! LOL! I told him I used to use ellipticals at the gym all the time when I lived in Redding, and he was impressed.

Sometimes I wish I could afford to join a gym again. Maybe someday.....
