Slowly but surely...I'm creeping back up there. I actually made it to the gym more than once this week...amazing! Next week...I'm aiming for 5 days of headaches at the packed gym. I hate January.
Anyway, I ran 5 miles on New Year's Eve. While I was sipping on my Mike's Hard Lemonade that night, a fellow non-running friend asked me "So what'd you run today?" It felt kind of funny saying "I've now worked back up to 5 miles". I don't know how in the world I managed to make all of my base mileage slip away from me...but I did it. Hopefully I can build back up quickly while battling the "temporary gym users".
Oh which also leads me to a great debate. My gym membership is up on the 11th. I have been a member at Anytime Fitness for exactly 18 months now. I was eagerly waiting for the day that I was no longer obligated to that gym...but now...I'm thinking I may return. I realized that most of the other fancier gyms will require me to pay an "installation fee" and that is something I definetly do not want to do. Actually, if I had it my way, I'd just have a gym membership for the winter so that I can run outside in the summer!!
Anyways, Happy New Year everyone!!! Have fun at your crowded gyms!
