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...
