I don’t know how it happened, but I have not been doing much in the way of exercise at all for the past few months. Well, with all the progress that I’ve been making in getting caught up with work and life in general, it was time to get back in the gym.
Holly and I had choir rehearsal at 7:00pm, so when we got out at 8:00pm we headed straight to the Harding Place Family YMCA. We had never been to this location, so it took a little orienting to figure out what we could do. All in all, it’s a very nice facility albeit a little smaller than the Maryland Farms location.
I did 20 minutes on the treadmill and then a series of weight machines for my legs. When I said I was ready to go, Holly tried to delay me by asking me to do some sit ups. It was on an incline bench and without even thinking about it, I just jumped on it and did 10. I was dying at the high elevation it was set at, so I lowered it down to a very small incline and did 10 more.
Overall it felt pretty good considering that it has been over 2 months since I’ve been in the gym. I’m guessing that it’s been all the manual labor that I’ve been doing on the weekends. 🙂
