Keep on Truckin' Baby

So far, so good this week. Yesterday I did a 1/2 hour of circuit weight work and my yoga class. I like Monday yoga, she's all about doing balance poses and, even though I don't feel like I'm working that hard, I always end up drenched in sweat by the time we're through.

Today winter finally arrived and it got cold. Because Gazelle Boy had his first driver's ed class from 6-8 tonight, I decided to do my 3.5 miles on the treadmill at the local branch of the health club. There's something really intimidating about a club filled with 20 something hard bodies shakin' their groove thang to find a date to go clubbing later. Every piece of equipment was full and I was on the last treadmill near the end.

About 20 minutes into my run, the vultures were circling for a free piece of equipment, trying to stare me down as I did my 10 minutes running/5 minutes walking paces. I kept doing my thing and by the time I was done, most of the posing and flexing had either moved to the weight equipment or moved out the door.

It really makes me appreciate the dozen or so folks that show up for the lunch time classes that I go to because... well, I like having room to move thankyouverymuch.

I suspect that I'll have to run there a few more times while it's cold - it happens. Who knows, maybe I'll get a good piece out of it.

Good for you for not letting the hardbodies stare you down.

I always get a kick out of those who just like in the parking lot see you sitting in your car just assume your about to pull out so they wait only to find out it's your lunch hour and your not moving for a while lol.

Anyway's I do intervals to so people who just walked in and see me running and then start walking just assume I'm almost finished "HaHa on you junior" but this old boy just got started lol. and feeling kind of good so I might just be here a while.... well that's what I'm thinking anyway:)
