Month-End Review, March

Dare I say that I had fun at the gym today?

Is there really fun to be had while gutting it out?

Maybe I should say that I had a satisfying time as I exercised in three parts. I got physical on the adaptive motion trainer, treadmill and arc trainer. As usual, the arc trainer worked me over -- but it was a good over.

While I was on the AMT, this woman got off of the treadmill, did five regular push-ups then went into a downward facing dog position and repeated the sequence several times before getting back on the treadmill to run. I was out-and-out impressed and, I swear, it made me want to drop down and do push-ups although I've never done more than seven in a row and I've never gone into downward facing dog as a transition.

I managed to exercise 27 days this month. I took off on Fridays even when I felt like I didn't need the rest and I exercised by committee on some days. Here's how I exerted myself:

AMT, 11 x's

Arc Trainer, 2 x's

Bike (Stationary), 1 x

Elliptical, 2 x's

Stair Climbing, 1 x

StairMaster, 2 x's

Swimming, 12 x's

Treadmill, 2 x's

Walking Outdoors, 2 x's

And in the immortal words of James Brown: I feel good, I knew that I would...

I Got You (I Feel Good)


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Congrats on all your hard work this month. That is so great. I've always had lots of fun at the gym, but over the last few months I've been struggling to enjoy it. I've been running outside instead, but have to get back into my spinning classes.

  2. I've enjoyed reading your blog and plan to stop by frequently. I haven't tried spinning yet but it's definitely on my to-try list. Thanks for your kind words...
